Your easy start with legal design for lawyers (they’ll thank you later)

No one likes the legal team?

Do your peers sigh when they learn your legal department is reviewing an issue? Mumbles about “the legal department being slow. Too much complication. Full of legal mumbo jumbo. It will take forever. The deal will fall over.”

Deep down, you agree. Change is necessary. Imagine life surrounded by an innovative, flexible, responsive legal team? Who are focused on providing speedy, relatable outcomes?

But where do you find an easy start with legal design training? Clear, practical, effective education in legal design. Boss friendly training. An initiative she can see the value.

You know it’s time to find a management tool to help you motivate and rejuvenate your team. You want to help the team find meaning in work.

Hey, it’s tough being the leader of an in-house legal team. The pressure to perform, innovate and be cost-efficient. You feel it every day, right? It’s not only leading and inspiring. It’s managing a mixed bag of high achieving lawyers of all ages and experience. Keeping the young and eager motivated, and the older crew open to new ways.

Will legal design thinking motivate my legal team?

Yes. The key for in house legal teams to work smarter and think outside the box. It is customer-focused and encourages lawyers to explore new things and deliver better solutions. Leave the stodge behind and embrace fresh, exciting approaches. Great for lawyers, great for business.

Legal design thinking is innovative, vibrant and collaborative. It transforms the culture of your team. No longer the stuffy suits in the legal unit. New mindsets, new skills and a new culture in your lawyers. It is the future of law (and happy lawyers).
