Tech Start for Law Programme
It is no doubt that technology has changed the way law is practised and will continue to shape how law is practised in future. In order for law practices to boost their business capability and remain competitive, we should embrace technology and become part of the disruption that faces the legal industry today. Technology-enabled processes will improve the productivity and efficiency of our lawyers.
To facilitate and assist law practices to achieve a baseline suite of legal technology, we have launched the Tech Start for Law Programme with the Ministry of Law and SPRING Singapore. Under the programme, Singapore law practices can get funding support of up to 70% of the first-year cost of adopting technology products for practice management, online research and online marketing. Five technology products have been identified as basic technologies that would help law practices perform their essential day-to-day tasks more efficiently. Please click here for a list of solutions supported under this programme.
Interested Singapore law practices can apply for funding support to use up to three of these solutions (i.e. one practice management system, one online legal research tool and one online marketing tool), depending on their needs. The 1-year funding support is limited to a maximum of 5 users only for each solution. Law practices who apply for the funding are also required to submit a feedback form and a final report at the 6-month milestone and at the end of the 1-year support period respectively. Please click here to view the workflow and the reporting templates.
Applications are open from 1 March 2017 to 28 February 2018. A copy of the application form is attached here. For further enquiries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
