Functions of Proper Record Management

Proper record management not only conveys organizational and managerial benefits, it is also a vital task necessary for fulfilling important legal requirements and duties. The Chancery Court Clerk has an important responsibility to preserve Chancery records. Proper record management will ensure our records are preserved and can be found when needed.
