CSR’s Stephanie Everett Leads Class at Emory Law School
ATLANTA, Ga., Sept 6, 2017
CSR’s client manager Stephanie Everett is sculpting minds at Emory Law School with her Economics of Legal Practice class this semester. This practice-oriented course introduces students to the typical structure of law firms, how they profit, and how they market themselves. Through case studies and hands-on exercises, students will come to understand variables of utilization and realization, the use of standard and alternative billing practices, the role of staff leverage, and how their contribution as junior attorneys can positively impact the firm. In addition, the class will discuss the economic forces impacting law firms today, how firms are responding, and how firms are branding themselves to beat the competition.
The class is for second and third-year law students, but the principles are impactful for long-time practitioners. In lieu of our clients being able to take the class, contact us for the “cliff notes” and how they apply to your business.

This CSR client specializes in civic engagement, strategic consulting, community planning, and urban design. We are excited to see the fruits of Contente Consulting’s labor in upcoming months.
