An effective blog can help you promote your practice, become more "findable" online, and take charge of how you are perceived by clients, journalists and anyone who uses the Internet. Blogging in One Hour for Lawyers will show you how to create, maintain, and improve a legal blog--and gain new business opportunities along the way.

The Failing Law Firm: Symptoms and Remedies

ALA Members $65.95 Non-Member $79.95

As institutions, firms face different, and in some cases, more intense structural challenges than most-if-not-all others. They are not held to the same standards of transparency, financial hygiene, and infrastructural-sterility as their publicly-traded clients. Leadership and management can all too easily be unprepared for their incumbency and overwhelmed by double duties. The firm’s “product” is highly mobile and prone to flight during even minimal financial dips. And while these are just a few hurdles, they alone are more than enough to bring many corporate CEO’s to their knees. The industry presses on, regardless, and deserves some guidance in its evolution.

Legal Leadership: A Handbook for Future Success

ALA Members $195.00 Non-Member $295.00

Today’s law firm is an entity in flux. Economic and technological disruption– along with a range of other factors – have contributed to this change, meaning that firms are not what they used to be. It is therefore a necessity that the way they are managed also needs to change. This means, among many things, the need to corporatize the running of the firm; a move away from the focus on the billable hour towards more intangible activities such as business development and marketing and –perhaps the most important factor – the development of a new kind of leader within the legal landscape.

Smart Collaboration

ALA Members $33.00 Non-Member $38.00

Not all collaboration is smart. Make sure you do it right.

Professional service firms face a serious challenge. Their clients increasingly need them to solve complex problems — everything from regulatory compliance to cybersecurity, the kinds of problems that only teams of multidisciplinary experts can tackle.

Yet most firms have carved up their highly specialized, professional experts into narrowly defined practice areas, and collaborating across these silos is often messy, risky, and expensive. Unless you know why you’re collaborating and how to do it effectively, it may not be smart at all. That’s especially true for partners who have built their reputations and client rosters independently, not by working with peers.

Solve Employee Problems Before They Start: Resolving Conflict in the Real World

ALA Members $28.15 Non-Member $35.67

From Amazon: With compassion, clarity, and conviction (and a dash of comedy for good measure) popular speaker and employment law attorney Scott Warrick distills conflict resolution to just three simple moves: Empathic Listening, Parroting, and Rewards (EPR). Because no one can use their EPR skills unless they can control themselves, he also shows you how to become an Emotionally Intelligent communicator, as mental toughness is a critical component in resolving conflict. The formula is simple: if you can control yourself, you can learn and master EPR skills to resolve any conflict in any situation -- and build durable trust with others, in your personal life and throughout your organizations, along the way.

Stop Blocking, Start Connecting

ALA Members $18.00 Non-Member $24.00

Over 90% of the communication problems that plague our life are the dreadful barriers that get in the way of happy relationships and productive interactions. Most of the drama we experience is caused by communication blockers, the regretful words that spring off the tips of our tongues or fingers, ready to cause conflict and chaos. Stop Blocking, Start Connecting shows readers how to transform relationships by recognizing where they get blocked, reducing bad communication habits, removing the 8 common blockers and replacing them with 8 powerful connectors.

Emerging Approaches to Law Firm Profitability

ALA Members $295.00 Non-Member $345.00

The legal profession, like so many other fields, has continued to reel from the deep-reaching and significant impact of the 2008 financial crisis. 

In the years following the crash, a general downward turn in the demand for legal services compelled firms to tighten their belts, make tough decisions, and come up with innovative strategies in order to survive. One of these was an increased focus on profitability and different means of managing and improving it, a relatively new development for the legal industry.

      Emerging Approaches to Law Firm Profitability

      The legal profession, like so many other fields, has continued to reel from the deep-reaching and significant impact of the 2008 financial crisis. 

      In the years following the crash, a general downward turn in the demand for legal services compelled firms to tighten their belts, make tough decisions, and come up with innovative strategies in order to survive. One of these was an increased focus on profitability and different means of managing and improving it, a relatively new development for the legal industry.

      The Failing Law Firm: Symptoms and Remedies

      ALA Members $65.95 Non-Member $79.95

      As institutions, firms face different, and in some cases, more intense structural challenges than most-if-not-all others. They are not held to the same standards of transparency, financial hygiene, and infrastructural-sterility as their publicly-traded clients. Leadership and management can all too easily be unprepared for their incumbency and overwhelmed by double duties. The firm’s “product” is highly mobile and prone to flight during even minimal financial dips. And while these are just a few hurdles, they alone are more than enough to bring many corporate CEO’s to their knees. The industry presses on, regardless, and deserves some guidance in its evolution.

      From Lawyer to Law Firm

      ALA Members $99.95 Non-Member $131.39
      Managing the business of practicing law should be as important to the lawyer as the practice of law itself. It is pivotal to the success or failure of a law practice. The lawyer who considers hanging his own shingle cannot appreciate all of the moving parts involved in managing a profitable law practice until he has actually done it. When you do venture out, on your own or in a partnership with others, you soon realize that there is much more to the business of practicing law than you ever expected. Everything about your law firm affects the most important asset that your law firm owns: the attorney/client relationship. In From Lawyer to Law Firm, we address the commercial aspects of practicing law that are unique to a law firm. During our combined 70+ years in the legal profession, we have both experienced situations which may seem unbelievable. No matter where you are in your legal career, authors Elizabeth Miller and Joryn Jenkins offer you guidance and insights based on those experiences that will help to ensure success for both you and your law firm.

      Future Law Firm Business Models

      ALA Members $295.00 Non-Member $345.00

      Much has been written about the pace of change facing the legal industry – how certain law firm functions are being replaced by artificial intelligence and new types of service providers, how accounting firms are looking to absorb and replace law firms, and how merging into worldwide mega firms of 3,000 to 10,000 lawyers is the only way to survive. Steve Jobs and others have called this evolution “creative destruction”. Richard Susskind referred to it years ago as “the end of lawyers”.

      It is true that the legal market is facing massive change. Technology, new ways of working, alternative methods of billing, and highly disruptive new entrants have all made their mark on the traditional legal business model. The Future of Law Firm Business Models takes a look at all these trends and more, horizon-scanning for future developments, and the ways in which these issues will fundamentally change the market.

      Innovations in Legal Project Management

      ALA Members $195.00 Non-Member $295.00

      The organizational competence of project management provides a solid foundation for every activity conducted by a business and the practice of law. Legal project management (LPM) provides the discipline that enables lawyers and those who manage legal work – in law firms, law departments and alternate legal services providers – to define, demonstrate and deliver greater value by balancing the scope of work, time, and resources as they strive for optimal efficiency, outcomes and client satisfaction.

      Although many distinguish the business of law from the practice of law, innovators in legal project management take an integrated approach. In commercial and governmental settings, practicing law is not an academic exercise, nor an end in itself.

      Law is a Buyer’s Market: Building a Client-First Law Firm

      ALA Members $35.00 Non-Member $45.00

      Law firms are experiencing a wrenching period of upheaval. Economic crises, technology explosions, and a regulatory revolution have spawned a wave of innovative competitors. Newly empowered clients have adopted aggressive buying behaviors and begun dictating the terms of their relationships to law firms.

      Faced with this unprecedented competitive landscape and an industry-wide drop in demand for their services, law firms need effective solutions to these existential challenges. And they need them now.

      Legal Assistant's Complete Desk Reference (2015)

      ALA Members $149.95 Non-Member $199.95

      The paralegal profession continues to experience growth. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Occupational Outlook Handbook, an 18% growth in the profession is projected between 2010 and 2020. Paralegals and legal assistants are an integral part of the legal system, assisting attorneys with a variety of substantive tasks. A legal assistant or paralegal is a person, qualified by education, training or work experience, who is employed or retained by a lawyer, law office, corporation, governmental agency or other entity and who performs specifically delegated substantive legal work.

      The typical duties of a paralegal or legal assistant are incredibly wide-ranging and varied. You are expected to perform all the legal work that does not require a lawyer sometimes, this means performing this legal work for several lawyers and a fair amount of the office tasks. There are also model rules and ethical codes to be followed.

      Legal Leadership: A Handbook for Future Success

      ALA Members $195.00 Non-Member $295.00

      Today’s law firm is an entity in flux. Economic and technological disruption– along with a range of other factors – have contributed to this change, meaning that firms are not what they used to be. It is therefore a necessity that the way they are managed also needs to change. This means, among many things, the need to corporatize the running of the firm; a move away from the focus on the billable hour towards more intangible activities such as business development and marketing and –perhaps the most important factor – the development of a new kind of leader within the legal landscape.

      Legal Project Management: Control Costs, Meet Schedules, Manage Risks, and Maintain Sanity

      ALA Members $71.95 Non-Member $89.95

      There are many ways that legal projects can fail: they are never delivered (or what is delivered is off the mark and unusable); they go over budget; or they take months or years longer than expected. When issues like these arise, trust between customer and supplier, or client and law practice, is irrevocably broken. Every successful project has one common thread: effective project management.

      This updated edition of Legal Project Management looks at the concepts of legal project management and demonstrates how to dramatically increase the odds of a project’s success through simple techniques. Author Steven B. Levy offers a project management framework designed from the ground up for legal practices and attorneys.

      Managing Legal Change Initiatives

      ALA Members $120.00 Non-Member $150.00
      Successfully managing a change initiative is no simple feat, regardless of the size of the firm – distilling the process of change into a workforce takes careful planning and support. Change is stressful and difficult for people to process and accept, as we often cling to what we know. This is especially true of lawyers, who are notoriously averse to change.

      However, the legal sector has begun to rapidly transform – and the firms that don’t change with it are going to struggle to stay relevant. In these turbulent times for firms, change initiatives must be properly managed to ensure the whole firm can successfully shift to the new norm and stick to it. Without the proper support and management, a firm runs the risks of alienating their workforce – who will not take well to sudden and imposed change.

In this new environment, managing risk no longer means simply avoiding malpractice claims and staying ethical. It now requires lawyers and law firms to address an increasingly complex world of rules and regulations in order to keep firms both respected and profitable.

      Smart Collaboration

      ALA Members $33.00 Non-Member $38.00

      Not all collaboration is smart. Make sure you do it right.

      Professional service firms face a serious challenge. Their clients increasingly need them to solve complex problems — everything from regulatory compliance to cybersecurity, the kinds of problems that only teams of multidisciplinary experts can tackle.

      Yet most firms have carved up their highly specialized, professional experts into narrowly defined practice areas, and collaborating across these silos is often messy, risky, and expensive. Unless you know why you’re collaborating and how to do it effectively, it may not be smart at all. That’s especially true for partners who have built their reputations and client rosters independently, not by working with peers.

        Emerging Approaches to Law Firm Profitability

        ALA Members $295.00 Non-Member $345.00

        The legal profession, like so many other fields, has continued to reel from the deep-reaching and significant impact of the 2008 financial crisis. 

        In the years following the crash, a general downward turn in the demand for legal services compelled firms to tighten their belts, make tough decisions, and come up with innovative strategies in order to survive. One of these was an increased focus on profitability and different means of managing and improving it, a relatively new development for the legal industry.

        The Failing Law Firm: Symptoms and Remedies

        ALA Members $65.95 Non-Member $79.95

        As institutions, firms face different, and in some cases, more intense structural challenges than most-if-not-all others. They are not held to the same standards of transparency, financial hygiene, and infrastructural-sterility as their publicly-traded clients. Leadership and management can all too easily be unprepared for their incumbency and overwhelmed by double duties. The firm’s “product” is highly mobile and prone to flight during even minimal financial dips. And while these are just a few hurdles, they alone are more than enough to bring many corporate CEO’s to their knees. The industry presses on, regardless, and deserves some guidance in its evolution.

        From Lawyer to Law Firm

        ALA Members $99.95 Non-Member $131.39
        Managing the business of practicing law should be as important to the lawyer as the practice of law itself. It is pivotal to the success or failure of a law practice. The lawyer who considers hanging his own shingle cannot appreciate all of the moving parts involved in managing a profitable law practice until he has actually done it. When you do venture out, on your own or in a partnership with others, you soon realize that there is much more to the business of practicing law than you ever expected. Everything about your law firm affects the most important asset that your law firm owns: the attorney/client relationship. In From Lawyer to Law Firm, we address the commercial aspects of practicing law that are unique to a law firm. During our combined 70+ years in the legal profession, we have both experienced situations which may seem unbelievable. No matter where you are in your legal career, authors Elizabeth Miller and Joryn Jenkins offer you guidance and insights based on those experiences that will help to ensure success for both you and your law firm.

        Future Law Firm Business Models

        ALA Members $295.00 Non-Member $345.00

        Much has been written about the pace of change facing the legal industry – how certain law firm functions are being replaced by artificial intelligence and new types of service providers, how accounting firms are looking to absorb and replace law firms, and how merging into worldwide mega firms of 3,000 to 10,000 lawyers is the only way to survive. Steve Jobs and others have called this evolution “creative destruction”. Richard Susskind referred to it years ago as “the end of lawyers”.

        It is true that the legal market is facing massive change. Technology, new ways of working, alternative methods of billing, and highly disruptive new entrants have all made their mark on the traditional legal business model. The Future of Law Firm Business Models takes a look at all these trends and more, horizon-scanning for future developments, and the ways in which these issues will fundamentally change the market.

        Innovations in Legal Project Management

        ALA Members $195.00 Non-Member $295.00

        The organizational competence of project management provides a solid foundation for every activity conducted by a business and the practice of law. Legal project management (LPM) provides the discipline that enables lawyers and those who manage legal work – in law firms, law departments and alternate legal services providers – to define, demonstrate and deliver greater value by balancing the scope of work, time, and resources as they strive for optimal efficiency, outcomes and client satisfaction.

        Although many distinguish the business of law from the practice of law, innovators in legal project management take an integrated approach. In commercial and governmental settings, practicing law is not an academic exercise, nor an end in itself.

        Law firms are experiencing a wrenching period of upheaval. Economic crises, technology explosions, and a regulatory revolution have spawned a wave of innovative competitors. Newly empowered clients have adopted aggressive buying behaviors and begun dictating the terms of their relationships to law firms.

        Faced with this unprecedented competitive landscape and an industry-wide drop in demand for their services, law firms need effective solutions to these existential challenges. And they need them now.

        Legal Assistant's Complete Desk Reference (2015)

        ALA Members $149.95 Non-Member $199.95

        The paralegal profession continues to experience growth. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Occupational Outlook Handbook, an 18% growth in the profession is projected between 2010 and 2020. Paralegals and legal assistants are an integral part of the legal system, assisting attorneys with a variety of substantive tasks. A legal assistant or paralegal is a person, qualified by education, training or work experience, who is employed or retained by a lawyer, law office, corporation, governmental agency or other entity and who performs specifically delegated substantive legal work.

        The typical duties of a paralegal or legal assistant are incredibly wide-ranging and varied. You are expected to perform all the legal work that does not require a lawyer sometimes, this means performing this legal work for several lawyers and a fair amount of the office tasks. There are also model rules and ethical codes to be followed.

        Legal Leadership: A Handbook for Future Success

        ALA Members $195.00 Non-Member $295.00

        Today’s law firm is an entity in flux. Economic and technological disruption– along with a range of other factors – have contributed to this change, meaning that firms are not what they used to be. It is therefore a necessity that the way they are managed also needs to change. This means, among many things, the need to corporatize the running of the firm; a move away from the focus on the billable hour towards more intangible activities such as business development and marketing and –perhaps the most important factor – the development of a new kind of leader within the legal landscape.

        Legal Project Management: Control Costs, Meet Schedules, Manage Risks, and Maintain Sanity

        ALA Members $71.95 Non-Member $89.95

        There are many ways that legal projects can fail: they are never delivered (or what is delivered is off the mark and unusable); they go over budget; or they take months or years longer than expected. When issues like these arise, trust between customer and supplier, or client and law practice, is irrevocably broken. Every successful project has one common thread: effective project management.

        This updated edition of Legal Project Management looks at the concepts of legal project management and demonstrates how to dramatically increase the odds of a project’s success through simple techniques. Author Steven B. Levy offers a project management framework designed from the ground up for legal practices and attorneys.

        Managing Legal Change Initiatives

        ALA Members $120.00 Non-Member $150.00
        Successfully managing a change initiative is no simple feat, regardless of the size of the firm – distilling the process of change into a workforce takes careful planning and support. Change is stressful and difficult for people to process and accept, as we often cling to what we know. This is especially true of lawyers, who are notoriously averse to change.

        However, the legal sector has begun to rapidly transform – and the firms that don’t change with it are going to struggle to stay relevant. In these turbulent times for firms, change initiatives must be properly managed to ensure the whole firm can successfully shift to the new norm and stick to it. Without the proper support and management, a firm runs the risks of alienating their workforce – who will not take well to sudden and imposed change.

        When the second edition of Risk Management: Survival Tools for Law Firms was published in 2007, the legal landscape was very different. Since then developments like new technologies, the financial crisis, and the rise of non-lawyers as major providers of legal services have all transformed the legal world immeasurably. In this new environment, managing risk no longer means simply avoiding malpractice claims and staying ethical. It now requires lawyers and law firms to address an increasingly complex world of rules and regulations in order to keep firms both respected and profitable.

        Smart Collaboration

        ALA Members $33.00 Non-Member $38.00

        Not all collaboration is smart. Make sure you do it right.

        Professional service firms face a serious challenge. Their clients increasingly need them to solve complex problems — everything from regulatory compliance to cybersecurity, the kinds of problems that only teams of multidisciplinary experts can tackle.

        Yet most firms have carved up their highly specialized, professional experts into narrowly defined practice areas, and collaborating across these silos is often messy, risky, and expensive. Unless you know why you’re collaborating and how to do it effectively, it may not be smart at all. That’s especially true for partners who have built their reputations and client rosters independently, not by working with peers.

Because no one can use their EPR skills unless they can control themselves, he also shows you how to become an Emotionally Intelligent communicator, as mental toughness is a critical component in resolving conflict. The formula is simple: if you can control yourself, you can learn and master EPR skills to resolve any conflict in any situation -- and build durable trust with others, in your personal life and throughout your organizations, along the way.

          From Lawyer to Law Firm

          ALA Members $99.95 Non-Member $131.39
          Managing the business of practicing law should be as important to the lawyer as the practice of law itself. It is pivotal to the success or failure of a law practice. The lawyer who considers hanging his own shingle cannot appreciate all of the moving parts involved in managing a profitable law practice until he has actually done it. When you do venture out, on your own or in a partnership with others, you soon realize that there is much more to the business of practicing law than you ever expected. Everything about your law firm affects the most important asset that your law firm owns: the attorney/client relationship. In From Lawyer to Law Firm, we address the commercial aspects of practicing law that are unique to a law firm. During our combined 70+ years in the legal profession, we have both experienced situations which may seem unbelievable. No matter where you are in your legal career, authors Elizabeth Miller and Joryn Jenkins offer you guidance and insights based on those experiences that will help to ensure success for both you and your law firm.

          Future Law Firm Business Models

          ALA Members $295.00 Non-Member $345.00

          Much has been written about the pace of change facing the legal industry – how certain law firm functions are being replaced by artificial intelligence and new types of service providers, how accounting firms are looking to absorb and replace law firms, and how merging into worldwide mega firms of 3,000 to 10,000 lawyers is the only way to survive. Steve Jobs and others have called this evolution “creative destruction”. Richard Susskind referred to it years ago as “the end of lawyers”.

          It is true that the legal market is facing massive change. Technology, new ways of working, alternative methods of billing, and highly disruptive new entrants have all made their mark on the traditional legal business model. The Future of Law Firm Business Models takes a look at all these trends and more, horizon-scanning for future developments, and the ways in which these issues will fundamentally change the market.

          Managing Legal Change Initiatives

          ALA Members $120.00 Non-Member $150.00
          Successfully managing a change initiative is no simple feat, regardless of the size of the firm – distilling the process of change into a workforce takes careful planning and support. Change is stressful and difficult for people to process and accept, as we often cling to what we know. This is especially true of lawyers, who are notoriously averse to change.

          However, the legal sector has begun to rapidly transform – and the firms that don’t change with it are going to struggle to stay relevant. In these turbulent times for firms, change initiatives must be properly managed to ensure the whole firm can successfully shift to the new norm and stick to it. Without the proper support and management, a firm runs the risks of alienating their workforce – who will not take well to sudden and imposed change.

          Solve Employee Problems Before They Start: Resolving Conflict in the Real World

          ALA Members $28.15 Non-Member $35.67

          From Amazon: With compassion, clarity, and conviction (and a dash of comedy for good measure) popular speaker and employment law attorney Scott Warrick distills conflict resolution to just three simple moves: Empathic Listening, Parroting, and Rewards (EPR). Because no one can use their EPR skills unless they can control themselves, he also shows you how to become an Emotionally Intelligent communicator, as mental toughness is a critical component in resolving conflict. The formula is simple: if you can control yourself, you can learn and master EPR skills to resolve any conflict in any situation -- and build durable trust with others, in your personal life and throughout your organizations, along the way.
