Our purpose is to maintain a set of legal technology core competencies and certification that:

  • Are workflow-based (as opposed to feature-based)
  • Offer a positive environment
  • Are sufficiently flexible for firms to use in the way which suits them (incorporating their own best practices).
  • Allow for any training or testing method

Two target audiences: Attorneys and Support Staff

Attorneys:

The attorney core competencies and certification have been developed to provide the skills necessary to address their professional responsibility to the firm and clients to create/oversee quality work product, avoid risk, and maintain confidentiality and compliance.

Support Staff:

The staff core competencies and certification have been developed to provide the skills necessary to support firm attorneys and clients to create efficient quality work product and enable the firm to measure staff proficiency to ensure firms goals are being achieved.

Who are the Members?

LTC4 is made up of individuals from firms, legal departments and legal non-profits, many of which have already done core competency programs in some way and wanted to move to the next stage, expand and improve on what they’d already done.

We are united in that we want to move towards core competencies which really reflect how users actually work.

LTC4 is expanding its membership. Law Firms, Law Departments Law Schools, Vendors and Consultants are invited to join. With members across the globe, we are accepting subscription applications.
