Seminars & Workshops

While Law Made has the capability to deliver seminars and workshops on many discrete topics — our primary focus is on building the 21st Century legal professional. That can include lawyers or not — and typically speaks to the growing requirement to have grounding in subjects far beyond a core domain expertise (i.e. substantive legal knowledge).

The T-Shaped Legal Professional applies to corporate law departments and law firms (intrapreneurs) as well as to Makers seeking an entrepreneurial path.

Our focus is to facilitate, guide and drive the formation of an actionable and achievable plan (versus a merely aspirational strategy).


BUILDING THE 21ST CENTURY T-SHAPED LEGAL PROFESSIONAL

Originating as the T-Shaped professional through IBM and wonderfully adapted to legal by R. Amani Smathers, the T-Shaped Lawyer who has deep legal expertise but also has the ability to collaborate across many disciplines, such as technology, business, analytics and more.

Legal domain expertise – the ‘stick’ is table stakes, necessary, but not at all sufficient. It’s the top of the “T” that is ever expanding.

Law Made provides education and guidance to professionals of all types to gain deeper understanding and grounding in:

  • Technology skills and competence for standard applications (including through Procertas)
  • Appreciation of Agile, Lean, Kan Ban and other project management and product development methodology
  • Coding: either basic understanding or applied skills
  • Data Analytics: to drive meaning and utility for the business
  • Design Thinking
  • Startup Methodology
  • User Experience (UX) Design
  • Startup Methodology
  • Intrapreneurship
