- Does OnLAW work on a Mac?
Yes, although it is not officially supported. CEB has tested OnLAW on Macintosh computers running OSX 10.5 and higher with both the Safari and Firefox browsers and has confirmed all features perform as expected.
However, OnLAW’s underlying software does not currently support the Macintosh platform and as such CEB can provide only minimal support for Macintosh (laptop/desktop) users at this time.
Minimal support means that CEB Technical Support and our programming staff will troubleshoot any problems, but if we can’t solve an issue ourselves, we don’t have the option to go to the software supplier for additional support.
We suggest that you enroll in our 14-day free trial to see if OnLAW works for your particular configuration.
OnLAW is not currently compatible with iPads or iPhones.
