Free Live CLE Webinar for Member Appreciation Month

Posted on May 1, 2019 by Rhys Saunders

This May, we're celebrating you during Member Appreciation Month. To help you meet your MCLE requirements, we're offering a free live CLE webinar for the first 600 member registrants on May 14 from noon to 1:00 p.m.

The business of law isn't what it used to be. Competition is up and margins are down. Clients demand value from their lawyers and are willing to shop around to find it. Lawyers face increasing competition from customary rivals as well as emerging online DIY companies that have commoditized many legal services. These pressures are forcing lawyers to re-examine their practices and processes. Lean Six Sigma is a managerial approach that relies on a collaborative team effort to improve performance by eliminating the waste of physical resources, time, effort, and talent while assuring that the work is done right the first time. Waste is defined as anything that doesn't add value in your client's eyes (your perception is irrelevant). In this seminar, you'll learn how to identify and remove the eight most common types of waste from your practice.
