What the Experts are Saying:

For years, litigation complexity and outside counsel’s marketing sophistication increased more rapidly than in-house counsel’s ability to keep up. The gap resulted in misallocation of client resources and litigation strategies that diverged from client needs. Baylor’s new Executive LL.M. program, headed by Professor Wren, helps remedy this problem—providing in-house counsel with training and tools (such as newly available ‘big data’ platforms) to make more informed decisions about selecting and managing outside litigation counsel and be more involved in developing litigation strategy.

Litigation is a fact of life for businesses in America. Generally, I inform clients that litigation is ‘bad for business.’ However, the negative impact can be minimized by effectively managing cases. Doing that necessarily involves understanding the process, procedures and tactics of litigation and developing a working relationship with your attorneys. Successfully and efficiently managing litigation involves teamwork between the client and the attorneys. This cannot happen unless one truly understands the process and has the tools necessary for managing litigation. I believe the Baylor Executive LL.M. in Litigation Management will provide that understanding and equip its participants with the necessary tools.
