The law never stands still! Keeping up to date with changes in the law and practice is an ever present challenge faced by law firms.
Legislation and regulations change all the time, new cases are decided which impact the law, new practice directions are released by courts and changes in document lodgement processes are made by various authorities. All these and more need to be continually noted and understood, as they can affect the way a law firm conducts client matters and does business.
Just keeping the firm’s precedents current with changes in the law is a major task – which is not billable! Using precedents which are out of date exposes the firm to risk.
Using By Lawyers commentaries and precedents eases the burden upon firms and reduces their risk.
By Lawyers have a team dedicated to tracking changes in the law in each Australian jurisdiction and ensuring that all of our content is updated as those changes happen. Firms using the By Lawyers guides can be confident that they are using commentaries and precedents which are up to date with current legislation.
In our latest podcast our Managing Director Brad Watts and LEAP’s National Marketing Manager Claire James discuss the issues around keeping up to date with the law and how By Lawyers can help firms to stay on top of changes.
