Is your legal department working harder and smarter than ever? InsideCounsel wants to know!

In September, InsideCounsel will publish the “InsideCounsel 10”—or IC10—a profile 10 legal departments that have developed innovative ways to solve the problems that beleaguer law departments every day. The nomination deadline for the 2013 IC10 has been extended through Friday, June 14.

The IC10 honors departments that have developed effective solutions for issues such as managing outside counsel or other legal vendors, providing business value to the client, using technology to boost efficiency, increasing diversity in the department, handling public relations crises, managing budgets and more.

The 2012 IC10 winners included legal departments that developed a program that prioritizes work-life balance, created a game testing consumers’ knowledge of a website’s online privacy policy and implemented a system to assess compliance risks and more.
