The times, they are a-changing-and fast! Have you recently reviewed and revised your Firm's Employee Handbook to ensure that all of the appropriate and up-to-date policies are in place?  Come to this fast-paced and law-firm business-focused session and understand what must, should be and should not be included in your Firm's Handbook.


  • Understand the changes in the law that require updates in your Firm's policies and procedures. 
  • Familiarize yourself with the risks associated with these changes and how to minimize those risks. 
  • Appreciate how to engage employees regarding the new changes in a manner that is neither off-putting nor heavy-handed.
