What is Legal Workflow?

Legal Workflows are procedural schematics supported by the checklists, precedents, flowcharts and decision trees your practice requires to help you conduct legal work more efficiently and effectively. Enjoy peace of mind when supervising and training less experienced staff or use them as a time-saving tool when completing tasks in novel areas of practice. Intuitive and up-to-date, workflows will become a new partner in your firm.


What does Legal Workflow include?

  • Navigation schematics - visual maps of legal processes and procedures that efficiently guide you step by step towards the outcomes your clients require.
  • Interactive tools - supporting checklists, decision trees and flowcharts that provide transparency and consistency in your legal work.
  • Tips and alerts - guidance and supplementary information highlighting areas of obligation and regulation to help minimise risk.
  • Forms and precedents - downloadable templates provided in context for immediate use.
  • Same platform access - related research publications and additional precedents suites also available on Westlaw AU, subject to subscription.
