Law Prof Launches Consulting Firm for Legal Hiring, Retention and Promotion
Lawyer Metrics offers "evidence-based systems" to select, develop and retain lawyers and counselors. Headed by Bill Henderson (Professor of Law and Val Nolan Faculty Fellow and Director of the Center on the Global Legal Profession, Indiana Univ. School of Law, Bloomington) the consulting firm helps law firms collect and analyze their own data to optimize their employment practices based on metrics shared by successful lawyers. One might say, indeed a recent AmLaw Daily article does say, "Henderson and his researchers are starting to take apart the urban legends that fuel the lawyer recruiting and promotion process." Quoting from Getting Beyond the Conventional Wisdom: A New Look at Firm Recruiting, Hiring, and Promotion.
Note the Lawyer Metrics claim: "We guarantee results. If you are not satisfied, you don’t pay." [JH]
