    Sue Manik: Standard Chartered Bank — How Legal Ops Teams Can Justify Value

    As AI tools continue to infiltrate the global workforce, how can legal ops teams separate relevant AI services from ill-fitting alternatives? And how can in-house teams best leverage some of these exciting new data models to make informed decisions?

    Sue Manik, Head of Supplier Performance at Standard Chartered Bank, believes that legal professionals must reevaluate how they think about data if they want to keep up with accelerated innovation.
    Sue walks us through the changes she’s witnessed in legal operations’ evolution from data-wielding sidekicks to collaborative partners and how Standard’s D&I task force is breaking barriers.
    Join us as we discuss:

    [3:10] How embedding in legal operations opens up new opportunities
    [12:43] Why legal professionals should never take data at face value
    [20:44] Measuring ROI on legal operations initiatives

    Sterling Miller - Hilgers Graben: The Art of Embracing Opportunities

    The role of the GC has come a long way since the days when everyone only wanted to work for big law firms.
    GCs have now evolved into a more strategic and important role within organizations, where lawyers are doing more of the legal work and interacting with the business. 
    For the role to continuously improve, lawyers must stay endlessly curious, evaluate what they’re doing and improve upon it, and learn how to delegate.
    This week, we're joined by Sterling Miller, CEO and Senior Counsel at Hilgers Graben PLLC. Sterling’s diverse professional experience has enabled him to strategically adapt to each position, embrace change, and disrupt the legal department.
    In this interview, we delve into what it takes for the GC to chart a more strategic path within their organization.
    Join us as we discuss: 
    [08:23] How the GC role has evolved 
    [21:34] How lawyers can be more productive
    [26:01] How to foster innovation and diversity in the legal department
