Law firms are increasingly faced with justifying their billable time and/or being asked to complete projects within a fixed-fee arrangement. If a firm's users are not sufficiently skilled in the technology that supports their workflows, it creates inefficiencies and increased billable hours. By encouraging lawyers and staff to become skilled and certified in a set of law firm approved core technology competencies, a firm increases its competitive advantage by reassuring clients that their chosen law firm has the most suitable skillset for dealing with their matters.
What to expect
Topics will include:
- The changes in the legal market which make technological competence a must
- The importance of lawyer and staff training to a firm
- The importance of core competencies
- Which skills should be targeted in a core competency program
- Tips for introducing a core competency mindset to your firm, and how to start implementing core standards as part of your staff development programs
- Information on how other firms have implemented core competencies
- Information on LTC4* (Legal Technology Core Competencies Certification Coalition)
*LTC4 consists of a steering group of senior training professionals from leading law firms in the U.K. and U.S., along with Capensys. The coalition has developed a set of legal technology core competencies for lawyers and staff.
