Developing a LegalOps Department in Your Organization
Date & Time
Wednesday, May 22, 2019, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Law departments are going through a transformation. With the emergence of legal ops teams handling more of the day-to-day and operational aspects of the role, GCs and in-house counsel are taking on more strategic and managerial roles within their departments. This session will look at how law departments continue to evolve how to build a legal ops team within your organization. Panelists will discuss hiring the right talent and the people skills needed to work in a legal environment, functions of the legal ops team and where it fits into the greater business structure, and how to improve efficiency and synergy between the in-house law department and legal ops team.
