“It is a business imperative that law firms put in place the talent management structures needed to ensure a sustainable future. These are tasks that require more leadership — and more than a few hours a week devoted to management functions.” - Law Firms Need to Take Care of Their Talent by Lauren Stiller Rikleen, Harvard Business Review, February 2012.

In recent years, we have seen continuing changes taking place in the legal industry, law firms and legal practitioners are no longer doing the same things they used to do. With the changing landscape of work, together with the new and emerging legal workforce, it is ever more important for law firm leaders to put in place talent management structures to manage and develop an engaged workforce. 

In this 2-day workshop (WSQ Develop Managers and High Potential Employees through Organisational Talent Capability Review, LPM-DEV-501C-0), participants will learn about the principles of talent management, developing high potentials, and succession planning and how they can develop a talent strategy for their firm. Through the learning activities, participants will get to develop game-changing talent strategy to recruit, engage, develop, and retain the right talent for their law firm.

The contents and context of the programme are specially developed based on findings from focus groups and discussions organised by The Law Society of Singapore with members of the Bar. This programme is suitable for partners/directors that are leading teams or in charge of recruitment in their law firms.

The programme will cover the following:

• Succession planning—how succession planning can be conducted in a law firm

• Risk assessment to identify critical positions in a firm and how to manage talent-related risk in the firm

• Talent management—defining and assessing high potential lawyers

• Developing lawyers who are identified as talent and high potentials

• Engendering employee engagement in law firms


Through the activities, participants will be able to apply the theory/concepts to their current law firms and from there, either look at designing & implementing a process for talent management and succession planning for their law firms (for those who have none at the moment) or to allow them the opportunity to enhance on their current process and practices.

Participants will be issued a Statement of Attainment (SOA) by WDA upon successful completion of the course.
