9:45 - 10:45 Ethics of
Outsourcing Legal Work - Want to grow your firm?
Historically, you could charge more or hire. But what if there was a third way?
Technology facilitates access to high quality legal expertise at a surprisingly
reasonable cost. Using freelance and contract legal help, you can do more work,
grow your firm, and help more clients. But, as is the case with everything for a
lawyer, it's important to be mindful of the business and, of course, ethical
implications of working with freelance attorneys. In this program, Greg
Garman, Partner at Garman Turner Gordon LLP and Co-Founder of LAWCLERK (a
marketplace for freelance legal help), will lay the business and ethical
groundwork to help growth-driven attorneys understand how they can use freelance
legal help to achieve their law firm business goals.
11:00 - 12:00 Advanced
Legal Research - In this session we'll take a look at advanced
legal research techniques and consider work that typically falls outside
our conventional understanding of 'legal research' but which
nevertheless represents common legal research needs.Presenters:

Mike Dahn, Senior Vice President, Westlaw Product
Greg Garman, Co-Founder and CEO of LAWCLERK, where attorneys go
