In-house technology award for matter management system available (securely) to outside counsel

On Jan. 25th, ALM’s Law Technology News announced the law department winner in its third annual Law Technology News Awards program.

Libby Throughton, Legal IT Manager for Home Depot, won the “Most Innovative Use of Technology by an In-House Legal Department” award. Her legal IT team developed a secure “TeamConnect” matter management system, improving the quality and frequency of the department’s communication with its outside counsel. Doesn’t strike me as particularly innovative, but it is good that law departments have their own category and awards.
