1. InsideCounsel 10

Do You Work For One Of The 10 Most Innovative Legal Departments In The Country?

In September 2013, InsideCounsel will publish the "InsideCounsel 10" -- a profile of 10 legal departments that have developed innovative ways to solve the problems that beleaguer law departments. The article will showcase the best practices employed by today's in-house legal community.

We are searching for departments that have found innovative ways of dealing with such issues as managing outside counsel or other legal vendors, providing business value to the client, using technology to boost efficiency, increasing diversity in the department, handling a public relations crisis, managing a budget or retaining staff. (These are just a few of the areas we will be looking at, but it is by no means a comprehensive list.)

If your department or a department you've worked with has developed an innovative way of dealing with a problem that is unique to corporate legal departments, then we want to hear from you.

In 2012, when we asked you to tell us about your creative best practices, you delivered a fascinating array of ideas. Last year's submissions ranged from developing a program that prioritizes work-life balance to creating a game testing consumers’ knowledge of a website’s online privacy policy to implementing a system that assesses compliance risks.

If your story is selected to be in InsideCounsel, an editor will contact you to setup an interview. We won't publish any of the information you include without first obtaining your permission.

If you have questions, please call me at (312) 651-0366, or email cflahardy@insidecounsel.com.

The deadline for completing this nomination is Friday, June 14.

Thank you,
Cathleen Flahardy
