Death of a Law Firm


The O'Quinn Law Library collection now includes Death of a Law Firm: Staying Strong in the Global Legal Market by Jaap Bosman with Lisa Hakanson.

Death of a Law Firm, despite its title, is not a pessimistic look at the future of the legal profession.  The book seems to have an optimistic view of the future growth of the legal sector and the attendant legal market; its skepticism is focused on certain developments in law firm management.  The authors review a number of recent trends in the law firm model and examine how they have been applied, both by successful law firms and by firms that have failed.  This book may be of interest to current law firm partners preparing for the future, or to anyone curious about law firms and law firm management.

Death of a Law Firm is is currently available on the New Books shelf at the far end of the law library reference desk.  This book's call number is KF 318.B67 2017.
