CompuLaw launches Web-based deadline calculator

CompuLaw yesterday launched Deadlines On Demand, a service designed to help sole practitioners and small firms calender court deadlines using CompuLaw’s rules-based service on a pay-per-use basis. The Web-based service allows lawyers to calculate court deadlines without the need to install or learn any software. The service researches the jurisdiction’s rules, adjusts for holidays and schedules all deadlines. Registered users calculate dates by entering the area of law, court location and the date of an event, such as a trial. The resulting list of deadlines and corresponding authorities is displayed on the screen as well as e-mailed to the user, and can be printed or sent to the users desktop calendar. The cost of the service ranges from $9.95 to $99.95, depending on the number of deadlines generated. The site offers a free tour.
