Wolters Kluwer Convenes Industry Thought Leaders on the Future of the Law Library

Wolters Kluwer will host a webinar to discuss the evolution of the law library and the transformation of the legal profession

In light of the financial pressures the pandemic has put on businesses, Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. will host a webinar to explore the evolving role of legal knowledge management professionals both in private practice and within law schools. The webinar, titled “The Future Ready Lawyer - The Evolving Role of the Library and Library Staff,” will take place on February 24 at 11 AM EST, and a wine tasting seminar for webinar participants will begin at noon.

The webinar will feature a distinguished panel of legal industry leaders, including Ronald E. Wheeler, Jr., Director, Fineman & Pappas Law Libraries at Boston University, Jean P. O’Grady, Sr. Director of Information, Research & Knowledge at DLA Piper US, LLP, and Steven A. Lastres, Director of Knowledge Management Services at Debevoise & Plimpton LLP. The webinar will be moderated by Wolters Kluwer’s Nicole Pinard, Vice President & General Manager of Legal Education, and Ken Crutchfield, Vice President & General Manager of Legal Markets. The panelists will share and address trends, progress, and challenges across the legal profession both domestically and globally, with a focus on the future. All webinar registrants will be sent three bottles of wine to participate in a tasting seminar with a wine expert following the virtual roundtable.

“In view of the challenges that businesses are facing, there will be a brighter spotlight on legal professionals and the performance of law firms moving ahead,” said Crutchfield. “During the webinar, we will discuss the need for law firm librarians and library staff alike to increase productivity and efficiency, while also ensuring they deliver the highest value and ROI.”

“The current climate presents a number of unknowns for the industry, but what we do know for certain is that legal professionals will need to continue to adapt in order to succeed in the future,” said Pinard. “This webinar presents an excellent opportunity to discuss challenges and best practices for legal knowledge management professionals with some of the industry’s top thought leaders.”
