In legal departments, operations have historically been an afterthought and that has reduced the ability to manage legal technology disciplines, such as eDiscovery and contract management, efficiently and cohesively. The latest post from Cimplifi discusses how legal operations ties those legal disciplines together!
Their post (Legal Operations Has Become Key to Tying the Various Legal Tech Disciplines Together) discusses how the practice of legal operations has become a discipline of its own, revolutionizing how legal services within the other disciplines are delivered.
In fact, the discipline of legal operations today even has its own global community and consortium of experts, known as the Corporate Legal Operations Consortium (CLOC), to set industry standard for legal operations professionals everywhere! CLOC was founded in 2010 to redefine the business of law and help set industry standards and practices for the profession. Today, CLOC has thousands of global members creating change and advancing the legal operations role across the entire legal ecosystem. They even have a yearly Global Institute conference in Las Vegas that is returning this May after a two-year hiatus because of the pandemic!
BTW, Cimplifi will be conducting the session Legal Operations at the Crossroads: The Convergence of eDiscovery and Contract Analytics at Legalweek on Wednesday, March 9th, at 11:30am ET. Leading the session will be Marla Crawford, Cimplifi general counsel, who will be joined by Ari Kaplan, of Ari Kaplan Advisors. The session will offer insight into achieving digital maturity from eDiscovery to contract analytics, accelerating the legal department beyond discovery with people, process, and technology, how to drive value in the legal department by driving change and showing how legal operations ties those legal disciplines together!
So, how does CLOC define “legal operations? And how does that impact how legal operations ties those legal disciplines together? Find out that and more here! And please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
