It is called, appropriately enough, The Practice, and is intended to bring together under one roof academic research and practical advice for legal practitioners including everyone from newly minted lawyers to BigLaw partners. The magazine will offer thoughtful analysis and perspectives on the legal profession for a global audience based on Center on the Legal Profession’s groundbreaking empirical research. More specifically, the magazine will address the following subject matter and topics:
- Research: What does academic research reveals about the best ways to practice law today? Get original research from the Center on the Legal Profession, plus reports from the journals tailored to your practice.
- Commentary: What are leading legal academics and professionals saying about the changing legal profession? In each issue, receive insights from the top legal practitioners and thinkers in the world.
- Perspective: What major trends will be affecting your firm over the next year, five years, or 10 years? How are legal services evolving as a profession—and as a business?
- Analysis: How do U.S. and worldwide trends in the legal industry affect you, whether you’re a newly minted associate or a partner looking to ensure a legacy? What can you expect from changing global regulation in coming years?
- Practice: How can law practices and professionals navigate change and elevate their practice? Each issue offers benefits like tips from top practitioners and “The Takeaway”—the bottom line on what the broad trends analyzed in each issue mean for your practice and clients.
This looks like it's going to be an especially helpful publication for those teaching legal skills to keep up with the times and latest practice trends. The inaugural issue is available for free here. Thereafter individual subscriptions to the bimonthly magazine will be $195 per year (institutional subscriptions will also be available).
