About Us

We are the Productivity & Knowledge Strategy Committee of the American Bar Association’s Law Practice Division.

Our Committee focuses on how lawyers within firms reuse and share what they know about

  • client work;
  • clients;
  • markets for their services; and
  • their firms as businesses.

We emphasize a knowledge strategy approach, which means starting with people, process and firm leadership, not technology. This people and leadership focus makes our Committee unique among other knowledge groups for lawyers.

We seek to:

  • promote awareness among firm leaders about the benefits of knowledge strategy;
  • facilitate exchanges of ideas among lawyers who are already committed to a knowledge strategy; and
  • educate practicing lawyers who are new to the subject.

Large and Small Firms. Our two subcommittees pursue initiatives seeking to address the needs of larger law firms and corporate law departments, as well as solo/smaller firms.
