In this three-part webinar series, “Issues that Fall Through the Cracks,” we’ll explore three issues that recent Thomson Reuters research found many law departments are facing. We’ll cover cooperation credit and personal accountability of executives; how to develop and maintain a modern law department; and data safety: understanding third-party vendor due diligence.
In this second webinar of the series, we’ll be discussing “The Modern Law Department: The Why and the How.”
The Modern Law Department: The Why and the How
If you’re like many in-house counsel, your company expects you to operate the law department like a business. Not only does that mean having people and processes in place to manage spend and matters but it also means streamlining the delivery of legal services to your clients, making data-driven decisions that contribute to the organization's success, and staying on top of emerging legal, regulatory, and reputational risks. It means being proficient and proactive. It means you have “The Modern Law Department.”
But what exactly does “The Modern Law Department” mean? Where do you begin? How do you develop it? And how can you maintain it, as you’re expected to do more and more with less and less?
In this webinar, these questions will be answered. In the span of 60 minutes, you’ll learn:
What is “The Modern Law Department” and why is it important?
What personnel, processes, and tools do you need to develop one?
How establishing a Modern Law Department enables you to be a trusted advisor to the business
And more . . .
Senior Legal Editor David O’Connor of Practical Law and Client Success Manager Kelly Prettner will discuss the importance of creating a Modern Law Department and best practices to develop and maintain it. Gina Jurva Scialabba, Manager, Thought Leadership for Enterprise Content, serves as moderator.
