We need to talk about Knowledge Management

Join us on Wednesday, December 7 for a frank discussion about KM

Let’s be honest: Knowledge Management is not what it used to be. Once considered internal librarians, the department has transformed over time into the Swiss Army Knife of the firm, managing overall efficiency, technology, digitization, operations, and more.

We’re so excited to host Nikki Shaver for a direct, honest conversation about the evolving importance of KM and what the future of the function looks like. We’ll also be taking your questions, so be sure to join us live!


EBS University

EBS University adds legal engineering to its curriculum

Last month, we shared how legal engineers are shaping the future of law. So naturally, top law schools around the globe have started exploring adding legal engineering into their curriculums. EBS University recently announced that they will begin offering a legal engineering course in 2023, with the support of BRYTER.

We love seeing these schools embracing legal engineering and preparing law students for tech-enabled careers! 

Financial Times: BRYTER is the leading legal technology company

Financial Times names BRYTER the Leading Legal Technology Company

This month, the Financial Times released its Accelerating Business Report, and we are excited to share that they have named BRYTER as the Leading Legal Technology Company. The report comes after months of research led by RSGI Consulting and interviews with legal departments and law firms around the globe, of which many, it turns out, are happy users of BRYTER. πŸ’™ 
We love legal, and it’s our mission to make legal work more fulfilling and rewarding for everyone in the industry, so this recognition means a lot to us, especially as it’s the result of conversations with our customers.

A 6-step process to identify which legal tasks you should automate

A 6-step process to identify which legal tasks you should automate

Most legal and compliance professionals face pressure to innovate, save money, and operate at the speed of the rest of the business. Automation can address all these pressures, but teams often struggle to figure out where to get started. 
Our Head of Business Consulting has worked closely with organizations of all sizes and has shared her proven approach to identifying high-value opportunities for automation.  
As she puts it, β€œAutomation isn’t the answer to every problem, but the approach I’ve outlined will help you identify where your work processes can be optimized and where automation can help you work smarter and meet the needs of your business.”
