The Amicus Academic Program brings best practices to the learning process

The Amicus Attorney Academic Program is designed to provide students and faculty at qualifying academic institutions with cloud and desktop versions of the world’s most popular practice management software platform.

Our commitment to our academic partners ensures that students receive practical training in all aspects of practice management, legal clinics are able to offer comprehensive pro-bono services, and legal programs continue to teach students utilizing the most widely used practice management software on the market.

The Amicus Attorney Academic Program is designed to give qualifying legal educational institutions licenses of Amicus Attorney practice management software for use in the classroom and for non-profit legal clinics. This includes software licenses, support and training resources, and documentation for use in the classroom as part of the education process.

Our existing academic partners utilize our solutions in a number of settings:
• Classroom use in courses on legal technology, practice management and case management
• Pro-bono university-affiliated legal clinics
• General university and Law libraries
• Personal use by students and faculty members while enrolled/affiliated with a member institution

Program Details

This includes software licenses, support and training resources, and documentation for use in the classroom as part of the education process. Customized services are also available at a discounted price.

Am I eligible to participate?

If your academic institution graduates legal professionals of any designation the answer is yes. Lawyers and law firms who use practice management software consistently report higher client and staff satisfaction, lower malpractice claims and higher billing and profitability. Amicus Attorney is the world’s most widely used practice management system and is the standard by which all others are measured. By introducing practice management at school, your students will benefit from greater practical exposure in the course of their academic process and will be better prepared for post-graduation work.

Just bring the desire to learn, and we’ll provide the rest

Our Academic Program includes the use of Amicus Premium Edition Amicus Anywhere or Amicus Cloud products designed to provide the most comprehensive practice management experience to your students and faculty, subject to your institution meeting our software requirements.

If your institution uses Microsoft SQL 2008 or later, or a Microsoft Exchange server, you will be able to use our products. Please note that Amicus Attorney Premium Edition requires Microsoft SQL 2008 Standard Edition licenses which are not included in the academic program and must be provided by the institution.

The hours for support are Monday to Friday from 8:30 am until 6:30 pm Eastern Standard Time. Support is restricted to registered staff of the institution. Students using Amicus Attorney as part of their schooling should use internal resources for assistance and training.

Our objective is to provide Amicus Attorney Academic Program customers with the best experience possible. Training will be made available via webinar along with local training opportunities through the use of Amicus Certified Consultants.
