36 contract management systems for law departments, courtesy of David Munn

David Munn spoke at the ACC Annual Meeting, Oct. 30, 2007. His materials listed 36 programs for contract management, ranging from relatively inexpensive programs, through matter management systems that include contract management features, to full-blown CLM systems. He points out that most of these vendors have extensive information on their web sites. I haven’t confirmed any of the sites, and during the intervening 16 months or so several of the sites and facts have probably changed.
