Impact of COVID-19 on Africa Legal Case Management Software Market
The world has been taken off guard by the COVID-19 pandemic, with most countries ill-prepared to deal with the problems posed by this quickly spreading virus that has harmed both health and the economy. 42 African countries implemented complete or partial restrictions on people's movements and activities in reaction to the outbreak. On the other hand, Lockdowns have significant economic costs, putting people's livelihoods in danger and worsening poverty. The United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) predicted in May 2020 that a one-month full lockdown across Africa would cost the continent roughly 2.5 percent of its annual GDP, or about US$65.7 billion each month. This is on top of the external effects of decreasing commodity prices and investment flows.
COVID-19 has had a significant impact on work practices in every industry, including law. As law firms and corporate legal departments transition to facilitating remote working and researching virtual ways of delivering services, the epidemic has accelerated technology adoption across the sector. The initial 'reaction phase' of COVID-19 entailed quickly implementing crisis management procedures to provide business resilience across the legal function. As office closures, social distancing, and stay-in-place tactics became the norm, this included switching to virtual governance and stakeholder involvement, for example. Access to technological platforms that may enable successful remote working for both in-house legal teams and external counsel quickly became necessary. As a result, the pandemic positively impacted the African legal case management software market, with more firms adopting it for their legal practices.
