ProLaw is part of the Thomson Reuters Elite solution.
ProLaw is an end to end enterprise business management solution that enables law firms to fully automate the practice and manage the business of law. It runs on a single database and connects all four major areas of firm investment:
- Financial Management
- Client and Matter Management
- Risk Management
- Business Development
SharePoint is often used as the knowledge management and enterprise search platform in law firms and is the single access point for lawyers and other employees for finding information that helps them do their jobs. The BA Insight Connector for Pro Law connects SharePoint (or any other portal) to ProLaw, enabling information from ProLaw to be surfaced while respecting the user privileges within ProLaw.
In addition to ProLaw, BA Insight provides a broad software portfolio for the legal market and many other connectors such as Aderant, iManage, LegalKey, NetDocuments, Practical Law, RealPractice, and West km.
The ProLaw Connector is off the shelf software that addresses the following requirements:
Works with all content within ProLaw, surfacing it based on user privileges of the source system.
Uses SharePoint search to find the information, providing consistent search within SharePoint and across ProLaw and other systems connected to SharePoint.
Provides extremely high throughput.
ProLaw is kept as the repository of the master information and the search index has only a representation (pointers) to it.
