Legal Knowledge Management
Reducing costs and expenses is critical for in–house legal departments. In many companies, the law department must comply with burdensome standards for efficiency and sometimes – outright skepticism from management and the board about the impact on the bottom line. You don’t need to pay for the same research and legal work product over and over again – you just need to know how to reuse it.
Contract Management: challenges and practical solutions
Today’s corporate counsel are faced with many challenges, including managing and administering a constantly increasing amount of legal information, particularly in the area of contracts. Contract administration is a key component of the legal department’s work. If lawyers do not have a solid grasp of what is involved, they can waste a considerable amount of time and efforts without getting any good results.
Technology Solutions for the Modern Law Department
Technology is often overlooked in corporate legal departments, even though established and userfriendly technology can free up time for stretched legal teams to focus on the high risk and highly skilled work that provides a tangible benefit and a real return on investment for a company.
Capturing and communicating the value of your Legal Department
How do you demonstrate the value of your legal department to managers and directors in the most effective manner? In this session, you will explore methods for measuring performance, productivity and quality of outcome, how to quantify value when explaining your department’s value, and how to speak to senior management about the law department using language, metrics and methodology that they will understand.
What you need to know about Cloud computing
This session will provide a review and summary of the current state of the legislation surrounding the option and will then focus on best practices and risk management measures that can be taken. Legal Suite, a technology solution provider, and a legal department will use their recent journey into cloud computing to demonstrate the processes, communications, benefits and risks that should go into the decision to use cloud solutions in your organization.
