The four tenets for law department modernization

Advancing the modern law practice is a series that includes insights through webcasts, articles and videos that can help law departments and law firms discover ways to think differently, work more effectively, advance innovation and leverage technology to drive impact to the business.

The first topic focuses on the foundation to help you drive your strategy forward: develop a diverse, agile, and collaborative workforce, create a practice that’s aligned and scalable to the overall business, bring data agility to strategic decision-making, and become platform driven

Tech-enabling the modern law department

How are you using tech for contracting, matter alignment and spending? Are you working cohesively to harness the power of your legal data? Identifying and implementing relevant technological solutions may help you. The second topic in our series discusses how, as the legal function continues to mature, there is increased adoption of ever advancing technology, and a new focus for law departments on how to make use of the best and most appropriate applications, workflows and resources to support contract lifecycle management (CLM), enterprise legal management (ELM), legal knowledge management (LKM), and other core functions.
