get involved: legal professionals
Learn the moves in today’s playbook
There is at least one moment in every legal professional’s career when they question whether the knowledge and skills that have served them well in the past will be sufficient for the future.
Perhaps it is a new law firm partner who now must oversee a large project. Or a general counsel who must improve processes to reduce her legal spend. Or a lawyer who is worried that younger, more tech savvy professionals are about to eat his lunch. The moment inevitably comes.
“You have to be adaptable,” says John Albright, Chief Legal Officer for HUB International. “And you have to be able to work outside your comfort zone. Those are not always terms you hear associated with the traditional lawyer.”
IFLP’s educational offerings are not limited to law students. We dedicate a limited number of seats for legal professionals to join us in our boot camps.
How does it work?
The Institute for the Future of Law Practice reserves up to 25% of boot camp seats for mid-career legal professionals who are looking to augment their legal expertise with disciplines taught in the boot camps, including business, project management, technology, and data.
The foundational boot camp covers the basic operational skills that all legal professionals need. An advanced boot camp shows students how to apply those skills in a transactional practice. Each boot camp contains several in-depth modules, developed by a leading academic and delivered by leading industry professionals.
Legal professionals attend the same boot camp as rising second- and third-year law students. The blend of law students with mid-career professionals creates an environment where all students—each having a rich background of experiences and perspectives—learn from each other.
