The Law Society of South Africa (LSSA) and Legal Education and Development (LEAD) held its first annual Practice Management Conference on 19 and 20 August at the Bytes Conference Centre in Midrand. The conference dealt with matters of everyday practice in regard to human resource management, financial management and marketing.The opening address was given by Brendan Hughes, director of Infology. Mr Hughes said it was an opportunity to think about practice rather than work in practice. 'Future proofing your legal practice is an important topic for lawyers to focus on in a time where change is accelerating, complexity is increasing and it is difficult to predict the future, five, ten or even 15 years down the line. It does not mean that we should stop trying to build strategies that see the profession trying to deliver the important role that it plays in society and at the same time remaining profitable and sustainable. The two need to work hand in hand,' he said.
