What You’ll Take Away
In a recent interview, we asked program chair, Michelle D. Millard what she thinks attendees will take away from this program. Here is what she had to say.
Participants will walk away having a better understanding of how to best provide legal assistance or use their legal assistants to become more efficient at their practice. This will allow the lawyer to practice more of the legal side and the legal assistant to add value by keeping things moving along smoothly. Participants will also be getting checklists that they will be able to use and refer to, and will walk away with pointers about different practices that other people follow.”
What Perspectives You’ll Gain
Learn practice management tips and strategies from distinguished panelists Ross G McLeod Q.C., Elizabeth Aspinall, Erica Banick, Bev Boyden, Bente Hallin, Kristine Jeffels, Aurora Lifeso, and Marvin Toy.
Here’s what Michelle had to say about the diversity of this panel and some of the perspectives you’ll gain.
We have a number of experienced legal assistants to speak about how and why an efficient practice benefits everyone. We also have a lawyer, who is very efficient in his practice, to address how to work most effectively with a legal assistant. Some outside parties will be participating as well and will be taking a bit more of a holistic perspective, offering solutions to make sure things run fairly, smoothly, and in accordance with the rules.”
