Join LMA Phoenix for "Bridging the Gap: What They Don’t Teach in Law School and How We Can Enlighten Our Attorneys"

Have you ever wondered what lawyers actually learn in law school? It certainly is based more in theory than practicality. Due to the lack of business teachings and tools in our nation’s law schools, it is imperative that legal administrators and M&BD professionals help to bridge the gap between the practice of law and the business of law. In this interactive session, we will break down the pillars of what law students do and do not study. Then, we will cross-reference those gaps with the teachings of a Masters-level business course to identify challenges and opportunities for educating and coaching the attorneys at our respective law firms.
