Regulations in the legal field are ever-changing, but with the right tools, keeping up with these changes and how they affect your firm is manageable. Having good preparation and knowledge is crucial if you want to be successful with your clients.
Monitoring regulations require more than paying a legal information broker. Below are some solutions to help educate yourself, your team, and your clients about specific areas and applications within your legal area.
Digital Automated Services
You can use website monitoring tools to notify you of changes to a website page via email. Emily Fenton of Attorney At Work recommends Visualping, which can keep tabs on specific regulatory information that you care about, regardless of where it is located on the internet.
Instead of having to revisit pages and refresh them manually for regulatory information updates, a website change detection service can automatically watch changes on your behalf and notify you with a link to those changes through email. Visit here to see examples given by Fenton.
You can also use tools like Google Alerts to have new search results for a certain keyword or phrase sent to your email.
Social Media Notifications
Whether you are active on social media or not, most users aren’t aware that you can specify your social media feed with a simple button. Be sure to click the notification button on the pages you care about for updates.
Blogs, RSS Feeds, and Newsletters
If you are fine with receiving e-mail updates for newsletters, RSS feeds, and blogs, be sure to follow information sources you know you can benefit from.
