Subject: This module deals with the nature of time and the need for lawyers (and other busy people) to make the most of it.
Purpose: When you have completed this module you should have greater insight into why you need to manage your time, and how you can achieve better use of your time. Lawyers often relate the value of their work to the time spent on it – but if you do not work efficiently you may be wasting your client’s money and your own available resources.
Reflection: Time management is essential for lawyers. Ensure that you have understood the module and reflect on how you manage your own time and if there are any ways that you could manage it better – or if you simply have too much to do. You should also have some insight into how clients view time spent by lawyers on their instructions.
Approx. time: 20 minutes
