Kluwer Takes Global Approach

Global Law Practice drafts agreements using an interactive computer questionnaire.

GLOBAL Law Practice Systems: Interactive Software for Drafting International Contracts is a user-friendly system that automatically drafts international distribution, commercial agency, license, value-added reseller (OEM), and sale-of-goods agreements based on answers to an interactive computer questionnaire that mimics the client-attorney interview, says Kluwer Law International of Cambridge, Mass.

Responding to a series of questions about the proposed transaction, the user provides information to build a customized draft contract. Warnings pop up on the computer screen as information is entered that triggers a potential risk to users. Resource screens provide numerous practice points and advice. The program recognizes the jurisdictions involved and attaches to the draft contract legal memorandums from prominent attorneys in the countries involved. Attorneys from 56 countries are involved in reviewing Global Law contracts; more jurisdictions will be included in the future.

Program Joins Text, Realtime Testimony

LITIGATORS now have single software program that combines full-text searching and realtime capabilities with video integration. The new tool, LiveNote FT, enables litigators to perform complex searches and also plug into any court reporter and receive a live feed, according to LiveNote, Inc., of Philadelphia. Previously, the company reports, if litigators wanted a transcript manager and a realtime program, they would have to acquire two separate pieces of software.

The software integrated video technology permits lawyers to synchronize videos of witnesses with the text of their testimony so that when scrolling the text, the testimony and video image are always aligned, the company reports.
