    Luckily, there’s a way to get the non-billable work done faster and more efficiently. With the right technology, law firms can automate many time consuming tasks—spending less time on administrative work and freeing up more time for billable hours and attention to clients.

    According to the 2020 Legal Trends Report, the average lawyer spends only 2.5 hours on billable work per day—which means nearly 70% of each workday is consumed by tasks like data entry, scheduling follow-ups, and time keeping. Yet these tedious tasks also need to get done. Luckily, there’s a way to get the non-billable work done faster and more efficiently. With the right technology, law firms can automate many time consuming tasks—spending less time on administrative work and freeing up more time for billable hours and attention to clients. Join Nefra MacDonald, Clio's Senior Manager of Strategic Engagement, to learn how to leverage automation tools to increase productivity and profits at your firm.

    In this session, you’ll learn:
    - How to differentiate between busywork and billable work in your legal practice
    - Three key areas in a law firm that are open to automation
    - How to select legal technology that can save you time and money

    Nefra MacDonald is the Affinity Programs Manager at Clio. Having worked in legal for nearly a decade, Nefra understands the pain points that affect legal professionals, and she uses her experience to help lawyers streamline processes and run better businesses. A graduate of the University of Miami, Nefra is a passionate speaker about legal technology, attorney health and wellness, and other topics relevant to legal professionals.

    Consider creating systems to retain firm knowledge so you can avoid falling into the trap of localized knowledge. In this workshop, we will show you why and what you need to do to get started.

    A law firm is made up of people and processes, as are all businesses. If you do not have uniform processes in place, you run the risk of losing integral knowledge when an employee moves on. Instead, consider creating systems to retain firm knowledge so you can avoid falling into the trap of localized knowledge. In this workshop, we will show you why and what you need to do to get started.
