Part Four TexasBarCLE: Practice Tools

This is the fourth part of a four part series highlighting: http://www.texasbarcle.com/CLE/Home.asp.

This post showcases the remaining practice tools that the TexasBarCLE website has to offer.

First, TexasBarCLE offers access to Casemaker & Fastcase with your bar membership. Access to both of these databases can be found on the left side of the homepage.

Upon selecting either database you will be prompted to login with your registered account. You can register using your Last Name and your Texas Bar Card Number. If you don’t have a current Texas Bar card number, you can still create an account at no cost, but your services may be limited.

TexasBarCLE also provides access to the Law Practice Management Program of the State Bar of Texas. This is a useful tool for solo practitioners or small firms who need help starting and managing their practice.
