Major Update

A major update has recently been done on mLaw. mLaw is now no longer just a legal records management software but can handle any physical filing automation task.

Some of the files that could be automated are student files, prosecution files, land files, police files etc.

It includes:

  • Cutting down the number of links visible on the home page.
  • Refactoring the data layer to remove duplications. For example instead of 4 event types, there is now only one event type that applies to all matters – court cases, conveyances etc.
  • The legal opinion was removed as an independent matter. It now exists as an attachment type. This means that it is possible to submit a legal opinion as work done for any matter.
  • There is now a general matter – which acts as a representation for any physical file.
  • It is now possible to declare the required documents (annexes) for all matters instead of only conveyances. This is done using the matter type. It would be possible to declare a different set of documents for a civil court case, a criminal one, a car conveyance, a land conveyance etc.
  • When specifying a new required document for a matter, it is now possible to say whether that document needs to be approved when it is submitted.
  • It is now possible to track who is in possession of a physical file using the assignment feature.
