100% of survey complete.
The purpose of this survey is to gather feedback from the legal community on the proposed LEDES API Version 2 Specification document.  A full copy of the documentation provided by the subcommittee as well as an informational slide deck can be found here as well as information on webinars offered by LEDES Oversight Committee during the public comment period.   Please download the information and evaluate it off-line before responding to this survey.

The API is intended to enhance and automate system-to-system communication while maintaining historic detail and functionality standards.  It is based on data exchange and machine processing, not complex file exchange with manual (human) intervention.  The JSON objects and invoice automation design provide enhanced functionality.  Multiple objects support data exchange for invoice modification, status reporting, and payment documentation for automated invoices as well as parsed LEDES 98BI and XML 2.2.x format files.  The remaining objects, such as business, vendor, matter, and timekeeper objects, provide the basis for the production and management of automated invoices.

The public comment period will close on October 31, 2023.
