The Business of Law: New Legal Service Provider Models
Corporate law departments are no longer the only ones leveraging nontraditional legal services from outside providers. Many law firms are now also using Alternative Legal Service Providers (ALSPs) to address client demands, control costs, help with scaling, and to provide access to technologies and professional expertise. This panel discussion will cover the risks and benefits of using ALSPs, the business considerations that go into engaging them, supervisory obligations, and will include practical guidance for law firms and legal departments seeking to incorporate ALSPs into their existing business models.

The Evolution of the Legal Ops Department: Maturing the Process, Culture, and Technology Tools of Your Legal Operations
Developing a strong legal operations function is critical to optimizing the performance and efficiency of any legal department. But that begs the question: what does a strong legal operations function look like? How many people, if any, should be on your legal ops team? What levels of experience should they have? To whom should they report? And what should legal ops be doing—and in what order–to optimize performance and drive efficiency?
