Law Firm Management in the Downturn

(Co-sponsored by Kogod School of Business)
April 9, 2002

This panel was aimed at practicing lawyers at law firms of all sizes who are trying to come to grips with the problem of the law firm as a business. Morning panels addressed the question of whether a law firm needs a professional non-lawyer manager, who possesses management, financial, or accounting skills; how to manage money, time, and personnel in a difficult economic environment, and the differences between small firms and large firms in management.
