What: 21st Jerry Mirza Memorial Risk Management Conference: Law Practice Matters
As the law evolves, lawyers must continue to stay abreast of those changes. As the legal profession evolves, how we practice law becomes more important.
Nothing highlights this more than the 2015 change to the Illinois Rules of Professional Conduct requiring lawyers to also strive for reasonable technological competence. Yet technology is not the only aspect of law that is changing. Consumers are changing too. To deliver competent, high quality legal service, lawyers must strive to meet the evolving demands and deadlines of clients. More than ever before, law practice matters.
As technology evolves, lawyers must continue to develop ethical and efficient office systems and procedures to meet the evolving needs of clients and the changing face of law practice. Better systems means better client service; better client service means happier clients. Happier clients mean fewer client problems and fewer law firm risks. Yes, law practice matters.
In this conference, ISBA Mutual insured lawyers learned about the ever-changing risks to practice with solutions to prevent them from stinging their firms. Plus, they received practical ideas, tips, and strategies to improve their practices and their enjoyment from them.
