An opportunity for MI Members

Thursday 13 May 2021

If you would like to hear about a cost-effective, software solution that could help you achieve time savings of over 90% on repetitive and tedious tasks when drafting and reviewing legal documents, then join us at an open Zoom session with Define on 13th May.

There will be two sessions to be ‘time-zone friendly’, one at 08.30 UK BST and another at 16.30 UK BST.

Define’s proprietary software plugs into MS Word and optimises the drafting and reviewing process by allowing users to quickly access defined terms and references in legal documents without ever having to leave the clause or provision they are currently reviewing. This 2-minute clip highlights its capabilities: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2n_IuvoigPo&t=2s

MI Mentor Series - Influence: Speaker : Dr Catherine McGregor

Learn more about effective influencing skills

Wednesday 16 June 2021

As an up-and-coming lawyer, one of the key skills to develop – for now and for the future – is your ability to influence effectively, your peers, your seniors, your clients, your support team.

What does ‘influence’ even mean in a legal and business context?

Why is it important?

And how can I develop it to work more effectively – both internally and externally?

If you are interested then Influence – with Dr Catherine McGregor on June 16th at 2.30 pm is the session you must attend.

Influence is a significant skill for every lawyer. But if your seniority at the law firm (or lack of it) does not necessarily automatically confer influence then how can you develop it and best deploy it?

  • What does effective influence look like?

  • The difference between influence and power.

  • Creating an influence audit.

  • Understanding your audience- the role of empathy.

  • How can you get your viewpoints across to clients and colleagues in the most effective way?

  • Influence when you’re junior.

  • Given your clients need to create more influence in their organisations and beyond, how can you, their lawyers, help that?

NOTE: If you are in our APAC region, please let us know if you’d like us to ask Catherine to do a session which is more accommodating of APAC time zones (eg. 8.30am UK time) – if there are enough numbers, we shall ask her to do that and also a separate session later in the day so that the western Americas don’t need to be up so early!
