5 Tips for Reinventing Your Legal Practice

The legal profession, like others, is undergoing a major churn, making it imperative for a lawyer to constantly adapt and reinvent their legal practice. This will allow them to build their business in a better and more fulfilling way.

Following the tips below will help you in building a thriving legal practice in keeping with the changing times.



Determine the Market Need

Before reinventing your practice, determine the market you will serve. Is there enough demand or is demand projected to grow in the market?

For example, over the last year, more states have legalized the use of marijuana. As a result, the demand for lawyers specialized in marijuana law is bound to grow as legalization is enacted in more states.


Carve Your Expertise

Check whether your former area of expertise complements the new area you would like to pursue. For example, if you have handled real estate cases in the past, you may want to branch out into real estate litigation. Depending on the area you would like to get into, this may mean short or long additional learning.


Read the Law

If the area you are branching to relates to discrete law, read the legislation. Read and digest the underlying legislative history. Any regulations derived from the law should also be understood. If the area you are branching out to is relatively new, it will be easier to manage the universe of material available.


Monitor the Cases

Like is the case with legislation, it is critical to read key cases in the practice area. The amount of key cases will depend on the practice area. To shorten your learning curve, use resources like practice guides to narrow down the most important cases you should know.

Legal transcription services offered by companies/agencies can make your work easier by transcribing the key judgments made in your new area of expertise. This will help you understand how the authorities handle the cases in the field.


Keep Updated

Be up to date with legal matters related to the practice area. Recent rulings, court challenges, and other matters can affect your practice. Use the internet and local resources to stay in the know.
