Automated document generation software is an increasingly important component of law firm knowledge management. This paper discusses the ongoing precedents development project at Meyer Vandenberg and how the firm has embraced a hybrid practitioner model, bringing formerly IT domain functions under the umbrella of knowledge and information services. This paper also examines on-the-job development of technical (programming) skills and the use of collaborative, customer-focused workflow models to improve stakeholder engagement, and facilitate knowledge capture and sharing.
