When assigning cases and projects and forming teams at your law firm, you should consider your associates' skill levels. Sukal Mondal of Attorney at Work discusses the ways that law firms are creating systems for tracking associates' skills to make allocating work easier, more efficient, fairer, and more beneficial for the associate.
Mondal explains, "Firms are formalizing their skills libraries and standardizing the skills each associate level and practice group needs to advance."
When you have an idea of your associates' skill levels, you can consider what particular skills a certain case or project may need and assign it based on who would be the best skilled and most interested or who needs more experience in that particular area. There are also opportunities for mentorship and collaboration by creating teams with mixed skill levels.
