Join LMA for a MBA Day Camp: Friday, October 24, 2014

Friday, October 24, 2014
Registration & Breakfast: 8:30 - 9:00 AM
Program: 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Are you aware of the strategic choices facing your clients over the next five years? Do your clients look to you as a trusted advisor in helping to make these business decisions? To keep lasting clients, you need to demonstrate a comprehensive knowledge of their business, from day-to-day operations to an understanding of the competitive dynamics that shape their market.

It is simple – the more a client trusts your business acumen, the more likely they are to turn to you for legal advice.

Legal marketers are a cornerstone of this reality. As advisors to lawyers in their marketing and business development, and often as the voice of the client, we have the ability to shape the way law firms cultivate new business and maintain strong connections to current clients.

During this full day program, instructors from MBA Day Camp will demystify these business concepts and showcase key ideas in Strategy, Marketing, Accounting, and Finance – the cornerstones of an MBA – with practical examples and real-world, relevant frameworks.


  • Useful frameworks such as Porter’s 5 forces, PEST, SWOT, Technology S-curves, and others
  • Review of a Harvard Business Review strategy case to drive home key themes


  • Useful frameworks such as STP, 4Ps, 3Cs, Price Elasticity, Hierarchy of Needs, and others
  • Focus on legal services – how buyers make decisions, selling the intangible, and others


  • Understanding the language of business – interpreting balance sheets, income statements, statement of cash flows, red flags, and others
  • Review of two competitors' statements to extract key insights


  • Useful frameworks such as Time Value of Money, Net Present Value, Cost of Capital, financial decision making, and others
  • Wall Street Journal reader – hedging, private equity, etc.

End to end case study
