The office will be located just outside of the downtown area. The office for which will you work engages in a general practice of law. The office covers the main areas of law — civil litigation, criminal defense, and transactional work. The attorneys have been working together for 5 years; two of them each have 4–5 years of additional professional experience in other law firms. The practice continues to grow. There is little time to organize the office, and it has no operating manuals or procedures. The office uses a time-management software, but the firm still lists former clients on 3 × 5 cards that it uses to check for conflicts of interest. For the firm to grow, it will need to rely more on technology.ASSIGNMENT RESOURCESHow to Submit an Assignment to the Dropbox
