UPCOMING LAW SOCIETY OF NORTHERN PROVINCES AGM, GOLF DAY AND FUN RUN

img

Well here we are – the final quarter of 2015. We seem to say the same thing every year – where did the time go? It's really crazy – is this just a Joburg thing?

The AJS team is frantically preparing for the Law Society of Northern Provinces Annual General Meeting, Golf Day, Fun run and Gala dinner which is going to be held at Sun City on the 29th and 30th October. There is an unbelievable amount of effort and planning behind the scenes that often goes unnoticed – but it is always worth it.

AJS has been involved in the sponsoring of this event for many years now but this year is really proud to have the honour of being the MAIN sponsor at the 2015 edition.

This fixture on the AJS calendar is a highlight of the year and everyone at AJS looks forward to it. It is an opportunity to interact with clients, have fun, compete in sports events and discuss challenges and opportunities for the Legal profession in the years ahead.

Please look out for our branding and people at all the events – the golf, the fun run, the AGM and the Gala dinner. We have planned some really special things and look forward to meeting you there if you are attending.

There will also be opportunity to chat to an AJS consultant on the new products and services available from AJS. There have been some really exciting developments in 2015 and we would love to share these with you.

ANOTHER EXAMPLE WHERE AJS CAN OPTIMISE THE VALUE OF YOUR TIME

We have included the below excerpt recently published in SOCIETY NEWS which we are sure that most of you have already read or become acquainted with. The reason we have highlighted this in our newsletter is because we believe that every Law Firm should find out about how easy it would be to handle changes such as this if they use AJS Xpressdox as their template management and document assembly system.

EXCERPT FROM SOCIETY NEWS:

RULING OF THE COUNCIL – RULE 89.19: DISCLOSURE OF NAMES OF PARTNERS/DIRECTORS ON THE LETTERHEAD OF A PRACTICE

Members should please note that the following ruling was approved by the Council, with reference to Rule 89.19 of the Rules of the Law Society: “It will be sufficient compliance with Rule 89.19: - In the case of a partnership consisting of more than twenty partners, if the names of the senior partner and managing partner (and in the case of a branch office, the names of the senior partner of the partnership and the managing partner of the branch) are disclosed on the letterhead, provided the letterhead contains a note indicating the address at which the names of all the partners will be available for inspection; - This ruling will similarly apply to the directors of incorporated practices.”

WHY AJS XPRESSDOX?

It would literally take a trained Xpressdox user a couple minutes to effect a change of directors to a letterhead for everyone within a particular Law Firm to use – no matter the size of the Law Firm.

So if this amount of time and effort can be saved with a simple letterhead then just imagine how much can be saved with complex documents!!!
