I’ve finally made the time for training on Summation, software used by our Litigation Support group. It’s extremely useful for document management of large litigation files, but I’ve had all of my facta and briefs of argument, leave to appeal applications, etc. into Summation and the search abilities are great. I can search fields of my choosing, by boolean or otherwise. For my precedent facta and briefs, I’ve chosen Author, Document Type (brief, facta,etc), Court Level, Plaintiff, Defendant, Issues and Category. I can’t wait to showcase it to one of the litigation practice groups.
I don’t know if anyone else uses this software and would be interested in others’ experience with Summation and creative uses for it.
