Taking Control: 12 Practical time management strategies for busy lawyers
Cathryn Urquart, Facilitator, Legal Practice Management Course, College of Law WA
Nowhere is the saying “time is money” truer than in the legal profession. The problem is, there never seems to be enough of it. Time, that is.
Good time management is an essential skill for the successful lawyer. Lawyers who are organised and manage their time well are likely to work more productively, think more clearly and make a better impression on clients and colleagues than lawyers who are disorganised or have poor time management habits.
The challenge, of course, is that there are so many competing priorities – client demands, business development, billable hours, staff meetings, phone calls and emails – it can be hard to fit them all in.
In this session, you’ll learn:
Expanding Your Range of Influence: Communicating from a professional and personal brand perspective
Julissa Shrewsbury, Director, New Work Consulting
Developing your personal brand as a law professional is not about having a ‘rockstar’ brand, splashed everywhere online! Sophisticated and effective personal branding is about understanding how you influence other people’s opinions of you, and then implementing tools to amplify your value in their eyes, in ways that feel authentic to you and resonate with your audience.
It’s about knowing who you are as a professional and owning the value that you bring or have the potential to bring. It’s about expanding your range of influence – your power to present ideas that are seen and heard.
For lawyers building a ‘trusted advisor’ brand, knowing who you are and what you bring to your profession plays out in a variety of scenarios, such as salary negotiation, promotion opportunities, creating influential networks, advocating for clients, building client relationships and attracting new clients. In a uniquely competitive and fast-paced environment, being influential is also about developing self-assurance to navigate tough situations.
The impact of culture on ethical behaviour
Adam Levine, Partner, K&L Gates
There is a crisis of culture, or ‘culture shocks’ occurring in various industries, including financial services, retail and start-ups. This has attracted the attention of regulators, legislators and other stakeholders. This seminar examines what culture actually is, explores the legal and general risks arising from poor culture, and considers the steps that can be taken to address this.
There are five sections to this seminar:
