How Can I Edit the Name of a Matter?

You must have the appropriate privileges to edit the matter name. If the options below are not available to you, contact your company's Lawtrac Administrator to confirm whether you have the rights to modify the matter's name.

  • Retrieve the matter - Lawtrac provides a number of options for retrieving a matter.  The most common of which is the QuickFind search box.  In this box, a user can enter text found within the matter name; Lawtrac will search the database and return all matters matching the search result.
