The most famous of the maxims inscribed on the Temple of Apollo at Delphi is “Know thyself.” Scholars believe these words were inscribed on the temple around 300 to 400 B.C.E.
So, ask yourself, does your law department really know itself? Or do your attorneys get so bogged down by work that they never lift their heads to consider how they and their colleagues might fit together as an effective, well-functioning whole?
A little self-knowledge can go a long way when it comes to finding the best solutions.
This article will explore the characteristics of three types of law departments. Its goal is to offer a fresh way to look at whatever confronts you, whether you fit neatly into one of these categories or hover somewhere in between.
