We believe that society needs good people. This includes lawyers. To be able to live up to this expectation, lawyers need to be equipped with all the information that can enable them to be good professionals and good people that are required by society.
Information distributed or shared by lawyers with each other often includes developments in the legal fraternity, updates on case law and/or new legislation. To be fully equipped, we (lawyers) need more than that, society requires more than that from us. In this digital era, modern lawyers are required to understand technological trends, improvements and solutions that will enable them to provide better services to their clients.
It is important for modern lawyers to keep abreast and align to trends and developments in business, marketing, recruitment, training and development. Every now and then lawyers need to be notified of job opportunities to enable them to advance their careers and join companies where they can make a difference. Lawyers need to be notified of seminars and workshops that will contribute to their development as individuals, businesses and professionals.
Good lawyers should be well versed with financial management and be able to take advantage of opportunities that are availed to them that will enable them to learn how to manage their finances better. This will enable many law practices and individual lawyers to avoid or navigate through financial difficulties in these tough economic times.
Over and above the technical ability and knowledge of the law that is an inherent requirement for the role of a lawyer, a good lawyer like any other person needs to be motivated and inspired as a person first in order to thrive as a professional.
We believe all these tools are fundamental to building a professional that businesses and society requires, a ‘good lawyer’. We have partnered with a number of talented and dynamic professionals who are experts in various fields, to create a platform, known as ‘the Good lawyers Network’, which will inform, inspire and equip lawyers with all the tools needed to be good lawyers. The list includes lawyers, business analysts, HR practitioners, recruiters, executive coaches, financial advisers, tax specialists, strategists and many more. This collaboration will enable us to share relevant information and insights that will help lawyers to overcome the day to day challenges that they come across in their professional journey.
All that is required from every good lawyer out there is to read the articles provided, attend seminars and workshops that we promote, take advantage of the career opportunities that we advertise and where applicable learn from the experiences of others shared through the materials that we will be posting.
In the words of Abraham Lincoln, ”whatever you do, be a good one”.
