Are you or do you know someone improving the legal profession and practice of law with innovative solutions. Nominate them for the State Bar of Wisconsin Legal Innovator initiative. Deadline for nominations is June 30, 2020.
April 15, 2020 – The practice of law is undergoing historic change. That change is driven by many things, including technology, economics, regulatory issues, changing client expectations – and the coronavirus pandemic.
Through the “That’s a Fine Idea: Legal Innovation Wisconsin” initiative, the State Bar of Wisconsin is asking the legal community to help it tell the story of legal innovation.
Tell us about the people and ideas that are changing Wisconsin’s legal landscape. Nominate a Wisconsin Legal Innovator who breaks with tradition to do it better. The Wisconsin Lawyer will feature the people behind the best examples of legal innovation in the November 2020 issue.
Ever find yourself thinking, "That's a fine idea; I wish I had thought of it"? Innovation can come in many forms. It could mean:
New ways to use technology to improve client service or serve a new market
Best practices for promoting workplace diversity
New marketing/business development strategies
New ways of providing pro bono or reduced-cost services
Changes in internal operations that result in greater efficiency
Nominations may be for an individual, a team of individuals, or even a law firm or other group serving Wisconsin's legal community.
The innovation must have occurred within two years prior to this submission; thus, for a 2020 nomination, the initiative must have been executed in part or in full between July 1, 2018, and June 30, 2020. The innovation can be ongoing after the nomination is submitted.
