Overcome your biggest challenges with Practical Law

Multifaceted responsibilities

Government lawyers don’t have the option of “turning down business” and must handle a broad and diverse range of legal issues.  Whether defending a Section 1983 case, understanding the nuances of the 1st Amendment, or navigating procurement and fiscal law, being able to respond to matters efficiently is critical.  Practical Law has the expert-written practice guidance to help you take them on quickly and with confidence.

Flat budgets and limited resources

Practicing law is even more difficult when budgets are flat, and you don’t have all the resources to do your best work. Despite these challenges, government lawyers still must deliver results. Practical Law gives you access to succinct, expert-written practice guidance that will help you accomplish more in less time.

Losing institutional knowledge

Government legal offices are typically lean, so retirements and other losses of institutional knowledge can be especially painful.
