The business of law facilitates professional practice alongside profitable and sustainable business practices. The business of law model requires lawyers to expand their professional knowledge base beyond substantive law and traditional models. The recipe for success needs to be more than a mix of legal professionals and business professionals: legal library information professionals are strongly placed to support this shift. This seminar explores the types of skills required for practitioners over the next decade and how legal information professionals can drive educational programs in universities, firms and across the legal community to ensure a better future for everyone.
