GARP® for Lawyers & Law Departments: Avoiding Malpractice and Keeping Clients Out of Jail!

Events July 21, 2012


We all know what can happen in the legal world when records aren’t managed properly. This course examines the Generally Accepted Recordkeeping Principles®’ (GARP®) effect on the legal profession and explores why lawyers must heed the GARP® principles to potentially avoid malpractice and, in some instances, to keep clients out of jail. GARP has become the standard for measuring any organization’s Information Management program, which appears at the cusp of the EDRM.net model. By the end of this course, you will learn to apply the eight GARP principles to determine adherence to the Model Rules of Conduct and relevance to the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.
