Client data, case information and time entry on the Juris 2.6 can be directly accessed via the email client using an add-in, LexisNexis said Tuesday.
Loretta Ruppert, senior director for law firm practice management at LexisNexis, said the company aims to connect attorneys and other legal professionals with the information they need from any location..
According to the company, research suggests law practitioners use email to manage their legal tasks.
More than 80 percent of law firms polled use Microsoft Outlook for email and scheduling, according to an American Bar Association survey cited by LexisNexas.
The Juris for Microsoft Outlook add-in has a search feature and works to enter billable time directly into the Juris Suite using the Juris Time and Expense module.
