A leader in cloud for law firms in the UK, LawCloud now features on The Law Society of Scotland’s website regarding guidance about cloud computing.
As the Law Society notes,
“Cloud computing offers many potential advantages to firms and the opportunity for more efficient and safer working. However, it also introduces new risks, from compliance with EU and UK data protection rules through to causing regulatory problems such as accounts rules compliance, and opening up new potential for service and conduct complaints.
To support members and also reduce risk to the overall profession the Society has issued ‘advice and information’ on the use of Cloud computing by law firms and solicitors in Scotland. This advice has been developed by the Society’s Technology Sub Committee in consultation with the Scottish Society for Computers and Law Group as well as industry experts and providers.”
The Law Society also notes that if members have any questions about the Cloud for their law firm, they should contact Neil Stevenson, Director of Representation and Professional Support, on 0131 476 8360 to discuss further.
We have already blogged about the recent Law Society of Scotland event at The Hollyrood Hotel in Edinburgh focusing on the Cloud Computing for law firms in Scotland, at which LawCloud provided expert input, assisting with the development of the guidance.
As LawCloud’s Managing Director, Warren Wander, noted in the recent blog post,
“The Law Society’s guidelines are a welcomed piece of collateral for the profession at a time when guidelines are well needed and I look forward to working alongside these advisory notes to offer the comfort that practitioners need in order to make the most of emerging innovations and trusted technologies.”
