Robotic Process Automation

UiPath is, in essence, the slow fruit of a group of engineers driven by an enduring ambition to build the best technology they possibly could. The way we work is changing. RPA is becoming the heart of every company's digital operation. The sooner we enable everyone to experience it, the faster we all get to master it to our benefit. For our robots, it’s monkey see, monkey do, really! Just click, select and type anything on the screen and UiPath will capture every mouse and keyboard action and translate them into logical steps inside a visual workflow. More information on UiPath can be found here.

Uniform Process Management System

The Association of Legal Administrators (ALA) has developed codes intended to standardize how processes within legal support operations are identified, defined and organized. ALA’s Uniform Process Based Management System (UPBMS) is intended to improve understanding of the increasingly varied administrative and operational processes that are required to support legal operations.

This code set is open source and available to anyone to use. The latest version of the codes are available in Excel and PDF formats. 

ALA’s UPBMS is intended to provide a foundation of categories and descriptions that provide guidance to legal management professionals, consultants and analysts as they develop or conform process improvement and management analysis tools and techniques that have application across the legal industry.

The codes have several applications, among them are HR/PD, Finance, IT, Marketing and Business Development, Operations, and Leadership.

Document Automation Software

Documate (formerly HelpSelf) is document assembly software that allows you to create your own customized “TurboTax” for any area of law.  Our technology was used at GLH 2018 to create an expungement tool that won two rounds of the hackathon and made it to the finals in New York.  It is also used by law firms, legal aid organizations, and court systems around the world to create interactive, mobile-friendly tools for self-represented litigants.

Documate is offering GLH participants the opportunity to use the Documate platform to build legal applications for the Global Legal Hackathon.  Documate representatives will be mentoring live and remotely to provide assistance.

Instructions for Use: Our platform has two tabs: Interview and Output Documents. Use the Interview Tab to create questions for your workflow, like you would on SurveyMonkey or Typeform. Then, use the Output Documents tab to upload your template documents and forms (which can be in .docx or .pdf format). View our tutorial videos at the link here or access written instructions at documate.wrkflows.io.

Through blockchain technology, iDefendo creates Digital Witnesses™ that assist in proving authorship and timestamps for any kind of data or process. There are endless areas where our API with Digital Witnesses™ can be of great value and assistance in helping businesses and companies in areas such as protecting IP rights, demonstrate corporate compliance and prove data existence and provenance. It has never been more important to be able to prove things. Whether you need a timestamp to prove you were the first one with a discovery or you need to prove you turned in or signed something on time.

Go to api.idefendo.com, sign up using the code glh19. This gives all participants access to the "starter" plan, Created for small and medium businesses. The starter plan includes:

• Unlimited users
• Unlimited signatures
• 10 access keys
• Public or private witnesses
• Witness metadata
• Witness auxiliary data
• Custom witness invalidation
• 100,000 new witnesses per month
• 1,000,000 witness storage
• Unlimited retention time

All you really need to create a witness is a piece of content and a signature. But more data can be added if one likes. Some of that data – like metadata – can help you find your witnesses more easily later but is not encoded into the actual witness. Other data fields – like salt – actually changes the witnesses that are created and can be used as a security or privacy measure. You can also add auxillary data that gets encoded into the witness and can be used to create chains of multiple witnesses, for example, to document the steps in a multi-step process.
