Course Description:

Reboot Your Legal Practice

If you’re an attorney, it’s hard not to be thinking about how technology has and is transforming the practice of law.  When I graduated from law school in 1998, I would never have thought that my job as a lawyer would involve me working remotely with technology for an international legal services company. However, for eight years it did and it was a fantastic experience.

 

Whether you’re talking about the ethical duty of lawyers to keep up to date with the latest technology, how attorneys charge for their services or the potential for robots to eliminate attorneys jobs, it’s hard to have a business discussion without considering how technology is going to play into the legal roadmap for the foreseeable future.

 

The lawyer’s that understand technology and how to implement technology solutions into their playbook are going to be the attorneys that come out on top. Think about it, if AI can automate almost any mental tasks that used to take attorneys hours to complete, clients will eventually stop paying for attorneys that are only generating work that the computer can produce. Lawyer’s that can figure out how to utilize the time saving and learning features of technology and couple this with the creativity, judgment and unique understanding that their legal background provides to deliver the solutions that the clients need will flourish in the coming years.

 

Whether you’re ready or not change is happening in the legal industry each day—some argue the change is good and others claim it’s bad. But I’ve decided that the naysayers are just obstacles that we (attorneys) must overcome. I’d hate to think that our entire industry would be willing to go down without a fight. So I’ve taken on a new venture. To challenge attorneys—both new and old to think about how technology is changing the legal landscape and about some of the opportunities that are happening in the legal industry. Technology has brought me many opportunities in the past ten years. I’m looking forward to seeing where the next ten years can take me, how about you? 

 

Increase your understanding of what is required today to competently represent your client. Explore technology in the legal industry and an attorney's ethical obligation for wellness under ABA Model Rules 1.1, 1.6 and 5.4.

 

Book Description

There's a widely held belief among female attorneys that to succeed professionally they must become a partner in a law firm or a general counsel at a large company. But why? Many female attorneys will have as much (if not more) happiness and success with a less traditional job: one that's less stressful, allows for more time to spend with their families, or provides more opportunities to work on
meaningful projects. Lifestyle Lawyer addresses the special challenges and opportunities female attorneys face in this new legal environment, both at work and in their personal lives. 


Section 1 of the book guides the transformation process so you can:

  • Identify where you are in your lawyer path
  • Discover how technology can help you transform your career
  • Learn to shape your own path—one that matches your personal goals
  • Establish what’s important to you–your values, your vision at work and at home
  • Uncover ways to distinguish yourself from your peers
  • Leverage networking to establish yourself as an expert

Section 2 looks at six different career paths for attorneys:

  • The law firm path
  • The corporate path
  • The solo-practitioner & legal consultant path
  • The alternative legal services provider path
  • The eDiscovery path
  • The cybersecurity & privacy path

My hope is this book will help women lawyers find a voice, find a position within the new legal market, and find the courage and knowledge to use their law degree and stay in the practice of law.

Lee Holcomb Consulting


Lee Holcomb started her legal career in 1998 in Tennessee. In 2006, she made partner–and had her first child. When her husband took an overseas position with the U.S. State Department, Lee was at first reluctant to leave her firm. But her desire to have a second child led her to take a giant step. On December 23, 2006, with two small children, she boarded a plane to Poland. Shortly after she arrived in Warsaw, Lee began planning her return to the legal workforce. This would ultimately take her to India, where she essentially started over in a part-time position with an international legal outsourcing provider. Thus began her second legal career path, which would eventually lead her to become the Chief Operating Officer and Director of Legal Services of the same company. Lee is currently on the third stage of her career: as an author, speaker, consultant and yoga/wellness coach for stressed-out attorneys. For more information see www.lifestyleforlawyers.com.
