The Brave New World of Law Firm IG Webcast Series
How to Move Forward with An Information Governance Program in a Law Firm

Thursday, December 13, 2012
2:00 - 3:00 PM EST

Planning and executing an Information Governance (IG) program are enormous steps for any law firm, but they are only the beginning. Once the core elements have been identified and are in place, the question becomes how do we best move forward to make IG an ongoing process in our firm? Successfully advancing and promoting an IG Program is complex and not always intuitive or straight-forward. The panelists in this webcast will share their thoughts on five common components that law firms can consider as they map out an IG program that works best for their firm:

  • Organizational Structure and Collaboration
  • The Role of the IG Professional
  • Marketing of the IG Program
  • Communications
  • The Value and Importance of Metrics

The panel will also emphasize that these components are not intended to be a linear, chronological process that is "one and done." Rather, they are a collection of activities and initiatives that need to happen simulanteosly, in a coordinated approach that is consistent with firm culture, size, and existing program status.
