COMPULAW DEBUTS U.S. INTERNATIONAL TRADE COMMISSION DATABASES.
The Rules of Practice and Procedure contain guidelines for various ITC investigations, including rules of general application, rules for increased import investigations (including global safeguard and bilateral safeguard investigations), rules for countervailing duty and antidumping investigations (including NAFTA Panel Reviews) and rules for investigations of infringement pertaining to patents, trademarks, copyrights or other unfair trade practices in import trade.
"When calculating a U.S. International Trade Commission deadline, time periods should begin with the first business day following the initiating event, rather than the first calendar day," said Alex Manners, director of Product Development at CompuLaw. "Unless the user is familiar with this rule and applies it correctly, events will be calendared incorrectly. Our new ITC rule set will ensure that these deadlines are calculated accurately, quickly and efficiently." With CompuLaw's Event Selection ExpertTM, attorneys now have an easier way to locate an appropriate event to be calendared and track its deadlines without the need for cryptic and confusing codes. This feature is broken down first by category and then according to the Parts of the ITC Rules of Practice and Procedure. Categories list both "traditional" headings such as pleadings, motions, discovery and notices, as well as headings that are unique to ITC practice such as comments and determinations.
The rules databases can be used with CompuLaw's software applications, CompuLaw VisionTM and Vision SQLTM (CompuLaw's MS SQL version of Vision), and with all the applications provided by CompuLaw's Alliance Partners, including Legal Files Case Management (integrated with Vision SQL), Elite Case, Amicus Attorney, CLS Case Management, Cycom Case Management and other leading systems.

Vision includes integrations with Microsoft Outlook, Novell GroupWise, Lotus Notes and the CompuLaw Vision Web Portal. The Web Portal utilizes Internet/Intranet technology to provide users with 24/7 access to their schedules from any location, through Vision SQL, via their Web browsers.
