Increasing Paralegal Productivity

Team Training Program

Increasing Paralegal Productivity

Increasing Paralegal Productivity is important for a successful paralegal program at a law firm.  Here’s why:

Paralegal A and Paralegal B have a 1,600 billable-hour quota to meet.

Paralegal A, working at 90% productivity, will meet that 1,600 billable-hour quota in 1,760 work hours.

Paralegal B, working at 70% productivity, will meet that 1,600 billable-hour quota in 2,080 work hours.

That means that Paralegal B is working 320 more hours per year to do the same amount of work as Paralegal A.

But how do you motivate a paralegal to be more productive when they are already working long hours?  Show them how that increase in productivity could allow them to have a better work/life balance.

Maybe they use those extra 320 hours per year to leave the office at a decent time or not have to work weekends to catch up.

In this motivational program, we show paralegals and other legal professionals how to increase their productivity while they are in the office so that they can achieve a better work/life balance and be out of the office sooner.  We show them how to measure their daily, weekly and monthly productivity and then give them solid methods to improve those numbers. Your paralegals will be able to set a plan for which methods will work best to see the most improvement quickly.

After we receive your calendar reservation, we will contact you to choose how you prefer for your group to attend the live webinar.

You can choose from:

  • Everyone attends as groups in your conference room(s); or

Upon receipt of payment, we will register your firm in our online webinar system so that you can share the login credentials with anyone attending the live event.

Additional Course Information

All team training programs come with 30-day recording access at no extra charge.  You do have the option to select longer access to the recording.  For example, some of our clients purchase 1-year access so that they can use the recordings for new hire onboarding and unlimited access for all members of the firm.

This course is approved for 1.0 CLE credit.  Each of your attendees receive a certificate of completion to keep up with their paralegal continuing education requirements.

We don’t charge per seat for our Team Training Programs.  Instead, you pay one flat fee for unlimited firm-wide attendance.  While the Paralegal Boot Camp specializes in training programs for paralegals, this team training event could also be attended by legal secretaries, paralegal assistants, docket clerks and other legal support professionals.
