Practice/Organization Description

I am Professor of Law and Stephen F. Burns Chair of the Legal Profession at Indiana University Maurer School of Law, where I teach courses on business law, project management and the economics and structure of the legal profession. I am also founder and primary editor of Legal Evolution, an online publication that helps lawyers, legal educators, and allied professionals understand and solve very difficult problems related to legal industry change. In 2010, I was part of a group that co-founded Lawyer Metrics (now Lawyermetrix), an applied research company that helps lawyers use data to make better operational and strategic decisions. In 2015, Lawyer Metrics was acquired by AccessLex Institute. I enjoy the challenge of combining the ideas and technical tools of university research with the contextual knowledge of business and legal practice.
