Lawyers' Professional Development: The Legal Employer's Comprehensive Guide, 2nd Edition

Lawyers' Professional Development: The Legal Employer's Comprehensive Guide, 2nd Edition

Ida O. Abbott, Esq., 2012.

Long known as the go-to-resource for leaders of professional development programs, Lawyers' Professional Development has now been substantially revised and expanded to address the seismic shifts occurring in the way law is practiced today. Topics addressed in detail include:

  • Designing and leading a professional development program
  • How lawyers learn and develop
  • Work assignments, mentoring, evaluations, competencies, and benchmarks
  • Training, including trends and innovations and the impact of technology
  • Coordinating PD efforts with recruiting, orientation, and integration
  • Knowledge management, leadership development, and succession planning
  • Special issues such as diversity and inclusion, career guidance, alumni programs, PD and mergers, budgeting, and more

To be competitive today the question for your firm is not if you should invest in developing your lawyers' abilities but how to do so most effectively. In this book Ida Abbott, a leading authority with more than 35 years of experience as both a lawyer and a consultant to the legal profession, offers a road map to the "how" of lawyer professional development, providing detailed explanations and extensive examples of the strategies proving most effective for law firms today.
