Lawyers are trained to spot the flaw in any argument. This works fine when two sides are pitted across the deal table or when you’re facing opposing counsel in a courtroom. But when this power of analysis is turned inward upon itself and the future of the profession, it can lead straight to analysis paralysis. Too many lawyers (despite their intention to change) are like ostriches with their heads in the sand.
Lawyers can change, but it requires new ways of thinking, acting and feeling — because what got us here, won't get us there. Like the ant preparing for winter in that old Aesop fable, now’s the time to start preparing for the next sea change.
On Thursday, April 8, join in-house counsel for this Leadership Roundtable to explore design-led methods for inspiring real change among legal professionals.
1. An understanding of basic design thinking tools and mindsets that are directly relevant to legal professionals
2. Best practices derived from real world case studies highlighting how other legal professionals are inspiring real change within their organizations
3. An overview of economic and societal trends that will change how legal professionals practice (in small and big ways) over the next ten years
