LAW FIRM OPERATIONS BOOK


by K. William Gibson


Some time ago, I proposed to develop a book on Law Firm Operations for the ABA Law Practice Division. The project was delayed for some time, but has finally been approved. The good news is that the ABA/LPD will pay royalties to the College of Law Practice Management based on sales of the book. 

I am looking for Fellows who can contribute a chapter to the book. (Each chapter will be around 7,500-10,000 words or 16-22 pages single-spaced, 12 point type.)

I have set a deadline of October 31, 2016, for the completion of the manuscript. 

The first thing I need is for you to critique my proposed table of contents:

LAW FIRM OPERATIONS
  1. Law Firm Accounting
  2. Business Continuity Plans/Disaster Management
  3. Office Space/Design & Management
  4. Technology/Cyber Security Management and Policy
  5. Risk Management
  6. Practice Group Operations
  7. Branch Office Operations
  8. Outsourcing & Contracting
  9. Records Management
  10. Sustainability
  11. Purchasing
  12. Responding to RFPs
  13. Banking Operations
  14. Insurance
Please email me to let me know what, if anything, I have neglected to include. Also, feel free to let me know that you would like to volunteer to write on your favorite subject.

Thanks,

Bill
