SALI Alliance Announces Version 1 of the Legal Matter Category Standard

SALI Alliance Publishes Law and Process Category Standard Codes

The Standards Advancement for the Legal Industry (SALI) Alliance has announced the release of the SALI Version 1 legal matter category standard, which includes the publication of area of law and process codes. SALI’s matter coding structure is unique: structurally consistent, digitized via modern programming interfaces, scalable, extendible, and party-neutral, providing a common language for firms and clients. SALI also announced its intent to publish the second release of the code during the LMA P3 Conference this coming June, which will further extend the taxonomy for location, jurisdiction, and other key business drivers of legal matters.

Vince Cordo, Central Legal Operations Officer at the Shell International, commented that “the SALI standard offers a unique coding for matters and simplifies how they can be managed, while improving our data analytics and reporting, digitizing procedures – moving the needle with measurable value. Legal departments are accelerating the innovation process and the SALI standard is an enabler to that end.”

Unlike typical legal matter work type codes, the SALI matter category standard offers enhanced flexibility to slice and dice matter data, particularly when used to aggregate information from multiple organizations.

The SALI Alliance founding principle is industry inclusiveness for firms, clients, organizations and industry technology service providers. SALI was created to ensure all stakeholders in the industry have a voice to shape the most useful and relevant standards that will create a common language to drive efficiency and serve as a foundation for innovating.
