How Law Firms Operate

Professor Westfahl will give an overview of how medium-to-large law firms are organized and how their economic and human capital models work. How are law firms different than big companies? What drives their profitability? As human capital businesses, how do they develop talent and what challenges do they face? Having spent 19 years in a large law firm, he will also offer his perspective on how modern law firms have evolved, what is working well, what they are trying to improve, and where they may be heading.


Scott Westfahl, Director of Executive Education and Professor of Practice, Harvard Law School
