Sacramento, California (PRWEB) March 10, 2009
Law Clerk Connection announced the launch of its innovative marketplace today, putting a nationwide network of law students at the service of attorneys in need of contract legal research and drafting. The Law Clerk Connection marketplace is the first of its kind to cater to the legal community. Law Clerk Connection offers both the tools and the talent that will allow lawyers to rethink the way they have been practicing law.
Technology has changed drastically in the past 50 years, allowing people to communicate at the speed of light from the four corners of the globe. However, many industries, including law, have not adapted to the new technologies that would allow them to stay ahead of the competition. Recently, the most successful businesses have "flattened" their business model, cutting out middle management, delegating tasks to less-costly service providers and using the latest technologies to their fullest potential.
Law Clerk Connection makes adopting this model easier for attorneys by placing state-of-the-art communication and collaboration tools in the hands of attorneys who can now reduce the cost of practicing law by utilizing law students and recent graduates, only when they need them, for the more time-intensive legal research and document handling. Attorneys still maintain control of the final analysis, decision-making and strategy in a particular case, but they are relieved of the initial hunting, gathering and analysis work. This in turn, enables attorneys to spend more quality time with existing clients, gives them more time to seek out new clients and reduces overhead costs.
Once registered, attorneys are able to post legal projects to be bid on by law students and graduates of ABA-approved law schools. In order to choose the most qualified law clerk for the job, the attorney may view the law clerk's portfolio to verify education, skills and writing samples, as well as feedback from other attorneys who have utilized that law clerk. Once the attorney has chosen one or more law clerks for the project, documents may be shared through a secure and confidential MediaShare forum, and messages may be communicated through a private message board, which also serves as the project record. For a limited time, attorneys may post legal projects for free.
Law Clerk Connection, LLC is changing the way law is practiced, saving time and money for lawyers and their clients, while providing law students with practical experience and mentoring.
