Dec. 14, 2020—uLawPractice partners with Centennial College to support paralegal students and faculty with practice management and legal accounting.
Students enrolled at Centennial College’s paralegal program will soon be getting an introduction to uLawPractice, Canada’s most trusted legal accounting and practice management software.
In December, uLawPractice partnered with Centennial College to outfit the school with free self-managed access to uLaw’s EDU environment. Students and staff are able to log into their own practice accounts and conduct exercises that they will later be graded on.
With the software, teachers can monitor a student’s progress with the production of accurate accounting books and recordings, including other important areas such as practice management, audit compliance and account reconciliation. All of these clerical duties are highly important for legal practitioners, particularly paralegals, who will be subject to thorough auditing standards upon being granted a license to practice law later in their careers.
“Schools such as Centennial College are now tuning into cutting edge technologies built specifically for Canadian legal practitioners. Gaining practical experience as a student is an extremely important element of education and we are very proud to be a part of that process. It’s good to know that the pandemic won’t be taking that away from any of these students, since uLawPractice is cloud-based and accessible from anywhere,” says uLawPractice CEO Terry Curtis.
Founded in 2010 and with its headquarters in Ottawa, uLaw works as a powerful browser-based practice management system which handles bookkeeping, form automation, and intricate trust and general accounting procedures.
One of the greatest virtues of the system, apart from its “made in Canada, for Canadian practitioners’ ethos, is that the software is embedded into cloud infrastructure, meaning that it doesn’t rely on local files to be stored on a computer.
uLawPractice is currently used by hundreds of law offices across Canada to handle practice management and legal accounting.
