Institute for the Future of Law Practice

 

Legal professionals need a bigger toolbox.

With clients increasingly demanding outcome-based solutions, legal professionals must supplement their traditional legal skills with a breadth of knowledge across disciplines. IFLP was formed to address this need. When IFLP succeeds, businesses operate more smoothly, access to justice improves, and legal professionals benefit from a higher return on their educational investments.
