National Docketing Association


Managing the docketing function of today's law firms and legal departments requires special expertise. Among other things, the docketing administrator must deal with technological changes, procedural trends that contradict former practices, rules changes, and fundamental changes in the way the practice of law is moving forward to meet client demands and reduce expenses.

For helpful solutions to the challenges you face day after day you need the National Docketing Association.  There is nothing like networking with like professionals and learning from others.
