A research project initiated by the Centre for Computers and Law of the Erasmus University Rotterdam will examine the application of information technology (IT) to law firms. The project stresses the specific organizational aspects that need to be taken into account when dealing with the implementation of IT. The project addresses three research questions; the current state of law firms regarding their use of IT; what triggers or does not trigger law firms to make use of IT; how can IT be implemented within law firms without making the mistakes made by other businesses in which the implementation has been a failure. This research may well be of importance to the Dutch Bar as it has set the goal that all law firms must have reached a certain level of automation before the end of this century.
