Law Practice Management Presentations to Law Students

Deborah McMurray has a great post on her Law Firm 4.0 blog about her recent presentation to a group on students at SMU Law School. The post is called "Law Practice Management Class - SMU Law School. What's on their minds."

She focused on marketing on the Internet, but centered her talk around two questions and the students's answers to those questions.

She asked them:

  1. When you think of starting your careers in a year or two, what is the biggest opportunity you see that the Internet can bring you?
  2. What is your greatest fear when you think about the Internet and your career?

The post shares their answers and their concerns. Deborah notes that the students concerns about the impact of the Internet on the profession track the concerns of lawyers. It's fascinating reading.

Deborah also links in the post to her presentation slides.

There does seem to be a bit more of a trend in the last year or so of inviting people knowledgeable on law practice managment to speak to law students.

I (Dennis Kennedy) will be speaking to a group of students at the University of Missouri Law School in April about careers, social media, technology and whatever else students have on their minds. I'm looking forward to it. As Deborah indicates in her post, there definitely seems to be demand for these types of sessions.

Hi Dennis,

I think the student of Law really need to get more savvy and learn about technology. In this day and age, its the new age attorney that will get ahead. With the right tools they can stay in contact, manage cases, market new clients, retain existing one and much more. All from just knowing more about the latest tech trends. Did I mention the cost saving and time saving ?

In practicing a law it should be legal skills. I want to be a professional lawyer someday because I want to service for the people who needs justice. This sort is really informative about laws. I learned something from your post. Keep it up.
