Teaching Units: Professional Development for Law Firms

OVERVIEW

The following cases explore the strategic and organizational issues unique to the law firm environment.

Each teaching unit can stand alone as a cohesive experiential component for existing courses; educators can also combine the teaching units on this page to create semester-long case studies courses, or can mix and match cases on this page for an abridged survey of the different teaching units.

This page will be updated as additional law firm case studies are added to the collection.
