This casebook introduces students to practice management skills involving a variety of issues, including formation of the firm, development of a marketing plan, hiring and retaining staff, setting up a law office, leveraging intellectual work product, marshalling technology and information resources, establishing office systems, setting and collecting fees, and managing a budget. The course examines the management of organizations that deliver legal services, the lawyer as a manager of legal work, and the application of management skills in the professional setting. Because more professional error is caused by administrative mistakes than by lack of substantive legal knowledge, practice management skills are fundamental to competent lawyering.
