In February, Friends of Farmworkers and the Pennsylvania Institutional Law Project went live with LegalServer. Both are based in Pennsylvania and are part of the Pennsylvania Legal Aid Network. Congratulations on all your hard work!
This month, we look forward to launching the Pennsylvania Community Justice Project, Center for NonProfit Legal Services, and Brooklyn Defender Services.
The Community Justice Project, a part of the Pennsylvania Legal Aid Network, works to protect and expand the civil rights of poor families and low-wage workers.
The Center for NonProfit Legal Services provides civil legal assistance to low income and elder residents of Jackson County.
The civil practice of the Brooklyn Defender Services works to reduce the collateral consequences of low-income clients involved with the criminal, family or immigration justice systems.
This month we have added a dedicated office hour on Friday, March 3rd, and our first Tuesday Training March 7th to the LSC Justice Gap Data Collection. If you are LSC-funded and aren’t sure yet how you will collect this data, let’s have a group talk.
We will cover the life cycle of a case in LegalServer on March 14th, Introduction to running and building reports on March 21st, and our monthly open Q&A session for admins and report builders on March 28th.
For groups onboarding with LegalServer, our weekly onboarding office hours will be held each Monday. Our Onboarding Essential Features Tour will be held on March 10th and our admin training will be March 7th.
Last month we saw four code releases on the LegalServer platform and closed 281 tickets. This work included some very complex and work on speed and accuracy of searches that involved detailed and lengthy testing by our entire team. We continued work in the wild world of .pdf data formats in official immigration forms, and added improvements in publications and pro bono packet generation. Event reminders should be working smoothly -- check your configurations if you are seeing problems.
We also added a new feature to export most listview data to CSV.
Turns out even for communication with their lawyer, people like to use emoticons. SMS messages didn’t export well with emoticons in our previous Excel export tool, which was upgraded along with the new .csv feature. 😎
Looking for information on how something works in LegalServer? Last month help.legalserver.org had 7,500 page views from 863 users. And that’s with no cute cat videos (yet).
We welcomed a new developer to our team. Deanna is from Kentucky and likes to take pictures of wildflowers when she isn’t smashing (code) bugs.
Since 2001, LegalServer has been helping the legal aid community do more with less by leveraging the most comprehensive web-based case management system for non-profit civil legal aid.
LegalServer case management software enhances performance for non-profit legal aid agencies, university law schools and public defenders. Through a cloud-based hosted platform we are improving legal case handling and providing insights to legal staff and management for making more informed decisions faster.
Designed to improve the effectiveness of data collection and action by enhancing the process by which data is collected, stored, and used, LegalServer will facilitate better communication, collaboration and reporting.
Many in the LegalServer team are attorneys who have hands on experience taking a powerful case management system and optimally configuring it to you.
