I just got an email from my friend John Kain in Australia.  John is the CEO/Managing Partner/Leader of the Pack (not sure of his title) of Kain C+C Lawyers in Adelaide.  John is as forward thinking as any lawyer I’ve met, trying to systematize the practice of  law whenever possible and treat law like a “real business.” I enjoy our discussions and always learn a lot from them.

Anyway, John’s email shared that his firm had created an annual internship position for a law student from Michigan State University Law School.  Here’s the announcement.  Dan Elliott of MSU has been chosen as the first intern and will spend August in Australia seeing the firm’s practice first-hand.

It will be interesting to hear how this experiment works, but kudos to John for his forward thinking.  It inspires me to think more about how to view critically what we do with an eye to doing it better.  I hope you find this idea inspiring as well.
