Legal Innovation in Operations (LIO) Project – 2022
First launched in 2020 with a focus on law firms, The Legal Innovation in Operations (LIO) Project was developed as a prestigious recognition program honoring those that have achieved innovation and design excellence in legal operations, thereby contributing to the evolution of the global corporate legal ecosystem.
After seeing tremendous success in 2020, the project is expanding to welcome submissions from the entire legal ecosystem, including legal service providers, law firms, academic providers, and in-house teams.
The 2022 LIO project recipients were recently announced at the CLOC Global Institute in Las Vegas! Read the full press release.
The 2023 LIO Project submission process will open in early 2023.

Visual Contract & Document Redesign Project
TIM worked with Villa-Visual Law Studio to redesign legal communications through process simplification by restructuring contracts and documents so they would be more easily understood by users. The primary outcome achieved was visual and digital transformation of legal documents resulting in reduction of lawsuits.
Experiential Student/Client Business Challenge
LiteLab created a program to educate future lawyers on how to address the challenge of “doing more with less” by working directly with inhouse teams to solve a discrete business challenge by learning and applying legal design thinking, business model canvas, agile methodology and computational thinking, using low/no code platforms to build PoC solutions that can be easily maintained.
Designing a Meaningful Data-Driven Equity, Inclusion & Diversity (EID) Program
Kaiser partnered with Digitory Legal to undertake a two-phase project including designing of workflows to ensure diversity data is consistently tagged within the company’s billing system. This initiative also required detailed staffing and budget plans be provided to promote “mindful” work allocation and equitable distribution of career advancing roles to diverse attorneys.
