Summer Clerks for All Seasons
3.30 – 3.45pm | Maia Room
In 2016, Janelle said farewell to equity partnership and started Helix Legal, a new breed of legal business focused on outcomes for clients and not billing targets. Very late one evening, she wished there was somewhere in cyber-space that would magically produce reliable, capable research clerks – and LawLancer was born. In her presentation, Janelle will discuss the role of the freelance economy in the firms and legal departments of the future and share new ways of tapping into legal talent.
Janelle Kerrisk is the Founder of LawLancer which was born to meet the game changing landscape of law. LawLancer harnesses the power of technology, mobilising thousands of engaged but under-utilised freelance clerks currently studying law across the country. LawLancer gives law firms access to a scalable and flexible workforce through an online marketplace to alleviate resources and meet client demands, while providing law students with quality paid opportunities to gain real world experience. The end-to-end solution includes all the communication, project management, documentation and payment needed to complete any gig, all housed in one secure and easy to use platform. It’s simply a smarter way to get things done, and a win-win for firms and students.
