Quasi-lawyering tasks – recognize them and root them out

I use the term quasi-lawyering to describe the tasks that a lawyer inside can do well, but shouldn’t do. It’s not simply lower value legal work; it’s work that the client should do, and I describe many forms of it in my recent article in Legal Times. In that same article, I explain why quasi-legal work comes about and how to root it out. (See my post on March 18, 2005 regarding contract management.)
