Met. Corp. Counsel, Vol. 15, June 2007, at 43, describes software available from Proskauer Rose and DecisionMaker Software. The software guides users through a series of straightforward yes or no questions regarding the Family Medical Leave Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. “By asking a simple set of questions, providing all forms, giving detailed instructions concerning where everything is to be filed and fully documenting a file through every step in the analysis, the software becomes a one-stop shop.”
The software, which is available free for evaluation through June 30, 2007, appears to be a good example of a law firm encapsulating its knowledge and making it available through a rules-based software package (See my posts of Feb. 24, 2007 on rules-based document assembly software; and April 18, 2007 on DealBuilder and the efforts of three law firms.).
