It is a code assigned to each matter, grouping the firm's work by type of law, ( for example DOM = Dissolution of Marriage, FAM = Family Law, PI = Personal Injury). You can view these as revenue streams and keep track of costs in the same way to see what “type” of law is most profitable. Also, some reports subtotal or breakout by case code.
If you have not entered any case codes (in File > Setup > Codes menu in Abacus Law ), the system automatically asks you if you would like to use the default list.
