Office Support System
We have invested very much in IT. This allows for efficient and timely delivery of legal services over and above the easy of storage. IT software is made use for internal and external communication. Law-pack Accounting software is used in the accounts department for capturing information and accounting to clients. Legal precedents, law reports and legal instruments are captured through IT.
The fellow heads research into all areas of the law but mostly the novel or grey areas. Acts more like the Bar with the rest of the lawyers being the side-bar. Allows for efficient time management with the rest of the lawyers spending less time researching complex areas of law, thus having more time for execution of clients instructions.
Within the confines of legal ethics on advertising, the incumbent in this department assists identifying negative aspects in service delivery to permit correction. They also point out the positives in service delivery to allow for maintenance of standards. The Executive also spearheads business development through innovation.
All the administrative or management duties are carried out by an Assistant Administration Officer. This allows for the legal practitioners to concentrate on their core business.
