I wish I could stand on a busy corner, hat in hand, and beg people to throw me all their wasted hours -- Bernard Berenson

Today's hectic legal practice involves constant deadlines. Of all the elements you have to meet deadlines, none is more precious than time.  If your typical work day consists of jumping from one "almost overdue" project to another, then it's time to set aside two short hours to learn time management techniques that help you use your time more wisely so you can become a more productive and less-stressed practitioner.

In this second in a series of solution-oriented Organization and Time Management for Lawyers  webcasts,  nationally known time management expert and lawyer, Meg Spencer Dixon,  provides time-saving strategies designed to help lawyers and other legal practitioners become more efficient including practical tips to help you start (and keep) working, limit interruptions, delegate effectively, keep your life in balance, and make those never-ending meetings shorter and more constructive. These proven techniques also reduce your risk of malpractice and disciplinary actions because they help eliminate a lawyer's worst enemy - procrastination. Attend this webcast and get practical tips to make the most of your work day!

Time Management Throughout the Day
