This blook (blog book) by leading consultant Rees Morrison, covers all aspects of how law departments should manage their external law firms
Online PR News – 07-February-2009 – – This 'blook – a book made up of compiled and ordered blog posts – contains 471 selected posts in 203 pages from Rees Morrison’s LawDepartmentManagementBlog.
The six chapters cover when do you need outside counsel, how do you find them, what billing arrangements make sense, how do you manage them, how do you evaluate their performance, and what other considerations apply. Within each chapter, the posts are organized according to a two-level taxonomy.
Most posts are two or three paragraphs; many of them have a source given; about half of them refer to at least one earlier post (a 'back reference').
Six tools help readers find posts of interest. The 14-page table of contents shows all the headers of the posts, in their order in the blook. The 8-page full index is exhaustive whereas the index of proper names is briefer.
The 27-page back-reference table lists back references by ascending date for the 240 posts that have a total of 589 back references. Another table lists each post in chronological order. A third table lists each post in alphabetical order by its header. Additionally, the book includes a 4-page table of sources.
