"Lawdable is a forum for in-house and managing attorneys to discover and share information related to the issues they face on a daily basis. Through a 'best practices' approach, the blog provides commentary from experts in a wide range of areas, citing specific client examples of progressive and innovative (or 'laudable') initiatives that have helped legal departments become more efficient and economical without sacrificing quality. More specifically, it focuses on national issues and general commentary on the use of attorneys in a nontraditional manner, issues affecting legal departments on a daily basis and how both new and tested approaches can offer solutions, litigation support and e-discovery, best practices regarding technology implementation and efficiency training methods for teams of attorneys, and the work-life balance sought by attorneys."
