If you haven’t already heard, Social Law now offers staffing and managed services to our member law firms. As a direct response to demand from members we have developed ways to help you improve efficiencies, eliminate redundancies and allow you to stop doing the routine tasks and focus on the more important parts of your job. Our goal is to continue to provide professional and paraprofessional librarians with the resources and support they need to do their job. We know that law firms are best served when a professional Librarian is directing legal research and information management, so unlike other outsourcing companies, Social Law backs up firm librarians with a nationally recognized collection of print and electronic materials and a staff of professional attorneys and law librarians. Helping you succeed is important to us!
