CHICAGO --- Getting a handle on legal spending, identifying opportunities to create efficiencies and the use of technologies to drive productivity, are among the key topics to be covered during the inaugural Corporate Legal Operations Institute hosted by Northwestern University School of Law on Tuesday, June 2 at The Standard Club, 320 S. Plymouth Court in Chicago.
Northwestern Law is taking the lead in in-house counsel programming on this important topic by offering the first of its kind institute. Led by leaders in the emerging field of corporate legal operations who will share strategies and tactics for effectively managing an in-house legal department, the daylong institute is intended for any small- to medium-sized law department without a full-time corporate legal operations director but with a desire to learn best practices from those law departments that do.
This interactive workshop will provide the opportunity to share best practices and identify and discuss emerging trends critical to all legal departments. Leading discussions will be operations directors from companies including Microsoft, Oracle, Archer Daniels Midland, Yahoo! NetApp and more.
