Attorneys and Flex Schedules

Thanks to Stephanie Russell-Kraft for her reporting on a recent survey conducted by the Diversity and Flexibility Alliance.

The take-away from the survey: attorneys on a partnership track do not take advantage of reduced-hours policies. No big surprise? But what does this say about the state of the business of law? Is there no room for a partner with other obligations (aging parents, young children, commitment to volunteerism.. ) ?

Surely the culture in law firms has room for partners who contribute more than just hours. How do firms measure the 'value' of a partner?

Is it time for a reset?

Going Digital (Paperless)

Attending the ALA conference? Here is a session you don't want to miss. Thanks to the team at DocSolid for a session making the business case for going digital (or in other words - going paperless).

PS: these guys have a great ROI calculator on their website. It will help you really think through the dollars-and-sense of a paperless initiative.

The Computers Are Coming

In a parallel universe inhabited by CPAs, it sees lawyers are not the only profession concerned about the impact of technology on their employment prospects. This article about the role of computing in the accounting profession by Lindsey Patterson, Senior Manager - Communications and Public Relations, Association of International Certified Professional Accountants discusses the topic.

Seems Ms. Patterson had a rather engaged reaction to comments by Mark Cuban who said.. "he would not want to be a CPA right now because advances in technology mean it isn't a profession for the future".. Her rebuttal zeros in on the value-add that CPAs bring to the table.
