OneSearch Direct, the largest local authority data search company in the UK, has been named as one of the sponsors for the Law Firm Services’ Conveyancing Conference & Awards 2014.  The event is to be held at the Ricoh Arena on 24th September 2014.

OneSearch Direct will also exhibit at the event which is set to feature topical conference debates from the technology, portal, banking, lender, compliance and regulatory sectors plus lively debate on the economic outlook from guest speaker and well known TV presenter, Adam Shaw.  Adam recently presented Panorama: The Great House Price Bubble?

“Since the early 90s, OneSearch Direct has been the pioneer of digital property data,” explains Ronnie Park, managing director, OneSearch Direct.  “Now, as the largest local authority data search company in the UK, we will be using the conference to demonstrate the power of our data set and explain why the accuracy of information is paramount to the conveyancing industry.

“It will also be the first opportunity to introduce details of our Validate Research Project, which is an investigation into the accuracy of Council sourced searches.  Previous studies which have highlighted high error rates were limited in scope and we felt it was necessary to carry out a larger sample to achieve statistical significance and credibility.  The aim of this study is to compare 1000, randomly selected, council sourced searches and complete data Accuracy Audits (DAA) on them.”

Park concludes: “The conference itself will be the perfect opportunity to introduce the study as the event addresses issues that affect the whole conveyancing sector and as always it will prove to be an excellent environment to explore the very latest ideas and solutions for the industry.”

The rise of the multi-disciplinary lawyer: A challenge for legal education

Catrina Denvir

The legal profession has been on the receiving end of much hype regarding the impact of technology. Recent commentators purport that the aspiring lawyer must be a triple threat, possessing knowledge of the law, coding expertise, and in-depth knowledge of legal technology. Yet, focusing on legal technology risks overlooking the need for skills that transcend latest fads. Legal technology is a means by which to handle data: to organise it, record it, extract it, analyse it, predict from it and leverage it. Quantitative and statistical literacy – the ability to understand, apply, visualise and infer from data – underpins technological literacy and yet receives very little attention from those who encourage innovation in the legal curriculum.
