The legal profession is a unique environment filled with high expectations, complex concepts and distinctive cultures that can make the learning curve for someone new a bit more like a learning canyon. In order to succeed, it’s important to understand the nuances that are ingrained in the business of law. Enter the “Law Firm 101” initiative –– a program that aims to educate and prepare law students/new lawyers and incoming legal IT professionals about the business of law … the business they’re in. ILTA held a “virtual roundtable” with three member thought leaders to get their insight into how the main points of this initiative are applicable to our members. Our interview with Marcy McGovern, Knowledge Management Counsel at Littler Mendelson, can be heard in its entirety on the accompanying podcast.
