About Legal Practice AND Innovation

Establishing a legal practice and managing that practice for growth can present different challenges you may not have had exposure to in your previous practice. 

The Legal Practice Innovation subjects equip students with the tools needed to effectively develop and manage a law practice, attract and maintain clients and manage staff. 

The coursework has been absolutely relevant to my daily practice. The material that was provided to us throughout the course is constantly being used by me throughout my practice.
