The International Legal Technology Organization (ILTSO), founded in early 2011 by a group of people involved in legal technology and law, has published guidelines for best practices and standards for all aspects of law firms’ technology needs. From my quick glance through them, they look meaty. The rest of the website suggests very little other activity, however, because several parts are under still construction.
None of the board members are in-house lawyers or with service providers primarily to legal departments so the initiative appears to be limited to law firms. Still, it is good for this to be underway, and to be applauded even more if it extends to the in-house community’s technology.
