Rapidly growing community college system cites Lawtrac’s integration with Outlook, ease of use, and strong client references in higher education as drivers of selection
AUSTIN, Texas, March 17, 2015– Mitratech, the market-leading provider of enterprise legal management (ELM) solutions, announced today that Lone Star College System (LSCS) has chosen Mitratech’s Lawtrac solution for its legal matter management, contract management, and spend management needs.
LSCS has been opening doors to a better community for more than 40 years. Founded in 1973, LSCS remains steadfast in its commitment to student success and credential completion. Today, with almost 83,000 students in credit classes, and a total enrollment of more than 95,000, LSCS is the largest institution of higher education in the Houston area. Stephen C. Head, Ph.D., is the chancellor of LSCS, which consists of six colleges including LSC-CyFair, LSC-Kingwood, LSC-Montgomery, LSC-North Harris, LSC-Tomball and LSC-University Park, seven centers, LSC-University Center at Montgomery, LSC-University Center at University Park, Lone Star Corporate College, and LSC-Online.

As one of the fastest-growing community colleges in the nation, LSCS needed to replace an outdated system designed more for law firms than for corporate legal departments. LSCS chose Lawtrac based on a rigorous evaluation process that included reference calls to other higher education legal departments. The recommendation for Lawtrac was based on its proven ability to comprehensively manage all legal matters, automate the department’s workflows, provide clear tracking and visibility into legal data, and integrate directly with Microsoft Outlook.
“As Lone Star College System continues to grow, the Office of General Counsel needed a matter management system that could grow with us,” said LSCS Deputy General Counsel Elizabeth Crawford. “Lawtrac provides us the reporting and tracking we need to manage our department proactively, and it does so with a re-designed interface that is easy to use for all legal staff.”
