Where are You with Disaster Preparedness and Recovery Planning?

Thu, 02/02/2017 - 00:04
911. Three numbers that, until 2001, gave most of us peace of mind if we were dealing with an emergency. Someone breaks into your home? Call 911. Someone is hurt and needs an ambulance? Call 911. The house is on fire? Call 911.

Then, without warning, early on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, our concept of those numbers changed. 9/11 became synonymous with disaster.

Give Gifts... to Yourself

Thu, 12/22/2016 - 22:17
You've likely been thinking recently about gifts to give your loved ones, your colleagues, your staff members, your special vendors, and maybe even your clients. But what I want to address today are gifts to yourself.

I'm not talking about things like that new smartphone or an electric car or a vacation getaway — although all of those are fine choices, if you can afford them. What I'm talking about are gifts that will make your business run more smoothly — and thus make your job easier and more pleasant.

Technology: prioritize in money and time

Thu, 11/17/2016 - 22:24
Google the word "technology" and in less than one second you'll get almost 3 billion — yes, that's right, billion — results. Love it or hate it, technology is not only here to stay, but also here to have an impact on your law practice.

No one can argue the importance of technology in a business. It can make life easier, it can free up time for more financially important aspects of a business, and it can improve communication (and, thus, relations) with clients.

But technology by itself is not a panacea for all of a business's woes.

Pro bono: Should it be required for recent grads?

Thu, 11/03/2016 - 22:20
Pro bono work is an indisputably positive activity — in theory. However, the specifics of a pro bono plan are not always so indisputable. That was made obvious by the recent proposal — and rejection — of a bill in California that would have required new lawyers to log a minimum of 50 hours of pro bono work before admittance to the bar.

‘Burden' for new lawyers

According to published reports, California Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed Senate Bill No.

Improving Law Schools: It's Good Business

Thu, 09/29/2016 - 22:01
It's better, but it's still not really good. What I'm talking about is the situation of law schools.

In a recent article in the American Bar Association Journal titled "Why Law Schools Need to Teach More Than the Law to Thrive (or Survive)," Chad Asarch and Phil Weiser write that law schools need to reinvent themselves and that merely teaching the details of law and testing students on that knowledge is an outdated system.

The authors offer suggestions for a new and improved system.
