Professional Development: Sharpen Your Skills

We love going into a new year celebrating the potential for personal and professional growth. It’s a “looking forward” mindset that is the root of positive change. The contributors to this issue of our magazine know a lot about positive change, and they’re providing wonderful advice and first-hand experiences from which you’ll benefit.

The Business and Practice of Law: Two Sides of One Coin

The business of law. The practice of law. These two notions have often seemed distant cousins, with sharp lines drawn between administrative personnel and lawyers. But change has been afoot for many years, and these disciplines are experiencing deeper collaboration, a clearer understanding of each other, and the knowledge that when the two sides of the coin work in harmony to delivery client value, everyone wins.

Future-Focused: Future Tech

This edition is filled with provocative ideas, scary thoughts, nostalgic reflections, interesting observations and more. We’ll ground you with practical advice on Office 365 migrations and the imperative of continuous learning; we’ll pique your interest with the notion of lawyers practicing from space; we’ll sate your innovation cravings with talk of blockchain, virtual reality and robotic lawyering; we’ll take you to the edge of your seats with cyber threats and shadow IT; and we’ll keep you turning the pages for more of our contributors’ views of our future.

There's An App For That!

This app-focused magazine provides a great lineup of content and a bonus of vocabulary expansion (and you’re thinking “Words with Friends” has that covered). As I read about “Splunk” and “Waze,” I began to fantasize about the merger of Waze and Uber to create “Waze and Meanz.” This spring edition of the magazine gets our annual publication lineup off to a brisk start with a style makeover and fabulous content.

Security, Up High and Down Low

As we ring in a new year, there is no more pervasive, relevant or ubiquitous concern facing our profession than “security.” Its many facets and rapidly changing complexities have us locking our doors, our networks and our processes for information exchange like never before. The legal sector is on the front line in safeguarding client and firm data, and one of our authors opines, “The world is far more connected now than at any time in history. The need to protect personal information and data from criminal, deliberate or accidental access or loss has never been greater.”

Our Mobile Workforce

Gadgets and widgets and apps . . . oh, my! It’s enough to make your chief security officer hide under the bed. Successful mobile strategies require diligence in learning and heeding policies, procedures and best practices around information governance, security and interoperability. Our contributors to this magazine have successes to share, and you’ll see mobility examined from every angle. We’ve got details on successful mobile device deployments, an in-depth review of Office 365, data management practices, pitfalls and lessons learned.

Law2020®: Business and Legal Process Improvements

We celebrate our sixth annual Law2020-themed issue of Peer to Peer by focusing on this important topic. With another chorus of “innovate or perish” ringing in our ears, our contributors to this publication have provided great insight from their own explorations of and successes with business process improvements.

The Professional Evolution

This issue of Peer to Peer looks at the changes around us and provides great advice across many professional roles. We're thrilled that many other associations provided rich content to support the roles they serve and speak of the challenges we face.

Fewer Connectors, More Connections

We’re creating an untethered workforce and plugging into connections in a whole new way. Besides great advice around managing your personal brand in the social media, our contributors talk about all things “connection-related”: moving to a Lync voice system, cloud-based case management, leveraging social portals to connect with clients, process mapping for improved collaboration, “security as a service” to defend against social engineering attacks and much more.
