Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Law practice management is the management of a law practice. In the USA, such practises are operated as independent businesses and so must be efficient and financially sound to be successful. Law practises in this country must therefore attend to business-like activities such as workload and staff management; financial management; office management; and marketing. Lawyers started practicing some millennia ago, and even law firms as an institution date back to the nineteenth century. The legal profession therefore had a head start on management theorists in the ordering and running of their own affairs. A law firm is a professional services business and must be set up and managed as such if it is to operate efficiently and at a profit. There is a debate however within the legal community as to whether the practice of law is a "business" or a "profession." Some legal commentators believe this false choice is one of the reasons most American law schools exclude law practice management from the standard curriculum.show more
