What is practicelaw?

MSBA’s practicelaw library is a resource developed by members for members. Contributions from members include sample pleadings, visualizations, forms, and more. practicelaw contributors are helping members meet the challenges of a 21st Century legal practice. The pracitcelaw conference includes three tracks, one for each leg of the Delta Model:

  • LEGAL/TECH | Build your practice: Legal writing and research techniques from folks like Liz Reppe (Minnesota State Law Library) and Faris Rashid and Aaron Knoll (Greene Espel). Get a grip on data analytics, document assembly, and artificial intelligence with folks like Vlad Eidelman (Fiscal Note) and Damien Riehl (Fastcase).
  • BUSINESS OPERATIONS | Build your business: Learn to think like an entrepreneur with Terri Krivosha (Maslon). See how attorneys are automating their work product for fun and profit. Manjeet Rege (University of St. Thomas) will show us how to read data visualizations…and, more.
  • PERSONAL EFFECTIVENESS | Build relationships: Plenty of on-demand and live programming covering effective communications strategies as well as strategies for managing one’s wellbeing in stressful times. We’ll hear from Leanne Fuith (Mitchell Hamline), Karin Ciano (Karin Ciano Law), and others.


Alyson Carrel is faculty at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law, teaching through the nationally-ranked Center on Negotiation and Mediation. For the past two years, she led the law school's legal technology & innovation initiatives as the Assistant Dean of Law & Technology. In these roles, she received a grant to purchase wearable cameras for my negotiation simulation courses, a fellowship to integrate the A2J Author platform in my mediation advocacy clinic, and launched TEaCH LAW, a demonstration series for instructional technology. Today, as part of a small working group of individuals from Thomson Reuters, Michigan State, Suffolk, and Vanderbilt law schools, she is developing a new client-driven lawyering model for the 21st century that recognizes the importance of technology fluency and emotional intelligence in the delivery of legal services—the Delta Model.
