Law firms of all shapes and sizes, from the solo general practitioner to large litigation firms, often needlessly expose themselves to malpractice due to the inefficient management of the calendaring process.

To the detriment of clients and firms, calendar failures are common and clients are intolerant of such mistakes.
This program will demonstrate how easy it is to avoid some of the ways that calendaring missteps occur through the use of a well-designed calendaring and docket control process. While there is no one right way to accomplish the task, the key will be in thoughtful planning, thorough training, and commitment to follow through from everyone in the office.
