Iken clients are finalists for 2014 MJ Local Government Awards’ best legal department

Three of the six finalists for the best legal department in the 2014 MJ Local Govermment Awards are Iken user teams, with another featuring in a shared services consortium that has also been shortlisted.

The award recognises and rewards ‘council legal departments that demonstrate exceptional value for money for their councils by delivering a great contribution, which makes a long-lasting and real difference to people, the local economy, the law and/or the legal profession’.

Long-time Iken users Barking & Dagenham and Thurrock Shared Services’ legal team are joined in the final by two teams that implemented Iken just last year: Enfield and North Norfolk District Council. A fourth finalist, the WYLAW consortium from the north of England, includes the Iken-using team from Calderdale.

Iken supplies case management software to local government legal teams in the UK, supporting more than 50 per cent of those using such systems.
