Training and education: Leaders in the making
Many current managing partners joined their firms before law became a global business. They worked hard, focused on their clients and then found themselves running increasingly complex and sophisticated organisations. Not surprisingly, the approach to leadership and management in law varies greatly and many leaders have been left to develop these broader skills in relative isolation. This is compounded by the fact that every other fee earner in the firm is working hard, focusing on their clients and trying their best to ignore the things that management is doing. This article assesses the extent to which current approaches to developing partners prepares them for the future and the role that training/development departments play in this future.
Henry Marsden, Peter Carrick, Nigel Spencer and Dorothea Bannerman-Bruce outline how the legal industry is changing and the challenges that face the business leaders of tomorrow
