Work and Home Life Balance

Posted By Meg Wickham, Thursday, April 9, 2020

We are navigating a new normal. Working from home is now not just an "outside of regular" work hours scenario. We've turned our homes into our offices. In addition, our newest co-workers can be spouse, partner, children, dogs, cats etc. During this time of sheltering in place, we need to remember to look for balance. This blog will be updated with links to resources that can help you maintain this balance.

Our Partners in the Profession

Posted By Ryan Purcell, Monday, April 6, 2020

The KBA partners with companies that offer our members products and services unique to KBA members. Our professional partners have resources for KBA members during the COVID-19 pandemic. We wanted to put those in one list for you as a valued KBA member.

Our Partners in the Profession:

ABA Retirement Funds

I hope that you and those close to you are staying safe and healthy during this unprecedented time.

I’ve been sensitive to not overloading email inboxes with notes and updates about the coronavirus, as I know my inbox is overflowing, but I did want to let you know about a couple things that the ABA Retirement Funds Program is doing to help ease the minds of our plan sponsors and participants and show our support for the legal community during this time.

  1. New website page:
  2. Three months free professional management:
    • During this time of uncertainty in the financial markets, many may have questions and concerns regarding their retirement plans. In an effort to support the legal community during this time, we are offering three months of professional management to all participants for no fee. Current participants can sign up between April 1 and June 26 to take advantage of this offer. This offer is being extended to all new plans that join the Program as well.
  3. Social Media:

The legal community has such a strong bond and I do believe we will get through this together.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic our hours will be changing. Effective immediately, Casemaker Support will be open from 8am to 8pm EST Monday-Friday. As always we can be reached by phone at 877.659.0801, email at support@casemakerlegal.com and live chat. When these hours change again, we will let you know via social media and these weekly emails. We appreciate your understanding. Now let's talk about folders in Casemaker4.

Like its predecessor CasemakerLegal, Casemaker4 also allows you to store documents you find over the course of your research. Using the Folders feature you can access your documents from anywhere you can access the internet. Saving hard drive space and paper.

The first thing you will need to do is create a new folder. You can create a folder at any time by clicking on the folder link in the upper right or the Folder menu option under the My Account menu. In addition, if you are on the document you wish to save, you can click the Save to Folder icon and type a name for your folder into the New Folder field and click the + button.

Once a folder has been created, you can save to your folder at any time. Just click the Save To Folder icon from the Document Toolbar, choose your folder, and click Save. If you prefer to drag and drop simply click the Folder icon, and this time choose the folder you would like to use and click ok. This allows the icon to represent the folder you have chosen. Next click and drag the title of the document to the grey toolbar area. Your chosen folder name will appear, and you can drop the document title on top of it.

When you are ready to view the contents of a folder, click the Folders link in the Features toolbar or the Folders option under My Account. Once there, on the left of your screen is a listing of all of your folders. Clicking your folder will display its contents in the central area of the page. Once the folder is open you have the opportunity to move, rename, and delete the entire folder using the options menu at the top of the folders list. On the right you can use the corresponding check boxes to move an individual document to a different folder, or to add it to the print queue, print directly, download, email, or remove. Don’t worry if you have accidentally deleted a document, or folder, that you need. You also have access to a Trash file.
