FLIP Stream:

Change Leadership for Small Law firms

On-demand webcast · 1.5 CPD Units

With the upheavals we have experienced so far in 2020, understanding how to manage change – whether transformational or crisis-driven, planned or emergent – is even more vital.

Change leadership may seem the province of in-house practitioners or those in mega-firms with innovation and tech departments. But in fact, small firms are typically well-positioned for change, being agile, more adept at survival and innovation, and with stronger internal relationships.

On Tuesday 1 September,  Dr Justine Rogers and Dr Felicity Bell from UNSW Law broke down the 2019 FLIP Stream research topic – Change Leadership for Lawyers – providing relevance for small law firms. Topics covered included:

  • Lawyers and change in a small firm context.
  • Types of change: transformational, crisis-driven, planned and emergent.
  • Making the most of strengths you already have.
  • Change frameworks and strategies for solo and small firm lawyers.
