Conveyancers set legal IT pace

A survey of 155 conveyancing solicitors has found that many are at the forefront of legal IT use and adapting to the latest technological advances, with 94% of practitioners having Internet access. Most respondents have a web site and many practitioners are well prepared for the e-conveyancing revolution - more than three-quarters used electronic forms and almost 60% have signed up to, or plann to introduce the National Land Information Service to their firms.
