17 Introducing Web Conferencing Web Conferencing is a tool that allows everyone to see the same thing on their computer while on the phone. LegalMeetings is a web conferencing tool for the poverty law community. It has other features that encourage participation and INTERACTION.

18 What Is LegalMeetings? Web Conferencing that uses Citrix Technology –GoToMeeting or GoToWebinar Facilitates meetings, collaborations, discussions, co-editing/review of documents, tech support, and team- building.

19 How Did We Get LegalMeetings? Legal Meetings was funded by an LSC Technology Initiative Grant in NTAP manages this grant, which is received by Center for Arkansas Legal Services. The entire community benefits by subscribing together, reducing costs to use it.

20 LegalMeetings Allows our program to do things we could have never envisioned doing. -- David Tilove, Pennsylvania …saved our program money -- we would have had to drive to offices to transition to a new case management system. -- Jackie Taylor, Georgia

21 LegalMeetings Solves… We cant afford training. You need to drive to this office because they need training…software support…mentoring… Can you go to page 6 in the second paragraph…wait, do you have the right version? Let me it to you. All these become No Mores with LegalMeetings.

22 LegalMeetings for Legal Aid Case Reviews across offices (review pleadings) Meeting of Computer Responsible Person monthly to review protocols Training for advocates Meeting one-on-one with a senior lawyer in another office All staff meetings

23 Georgia Legal Services Program 11 offices for GLSP, 5 of them require an overnight stay for a visiting staff from another office due to distance. Average distance 3.5 hour one way In 2006: changed the Case Management System

24 LegalMeetings: Georgia They had planned on two people providing training to all offices at least twice. Instead… Held 47 trainings on LegalServer (their CMS) covering: new timekeeping, case handling software, and policies. Saved an estimated 630 hours of driving time Calculated soft savings of $23,424 for GLSP

25 A Look at Ohio: Advocates for Basic Legal Equity Hired 10 AmeriCorps lawyers across the state to help in consumer law But…only 1 expert Consumer lawyer to train them. LegalMeetings helps them train on laws, briefs, issues, and strategies. 1 Consumer lawyer can more effectively train 10 rather than drive to each or spend money on in-person trainings.
