The DuPont Legal Model has become the de facto standard for relationships between corporate law departments and outside law firms. So I was intrigued when I received a note today from Jean Graef, founder of the Montague Institute in the beautiful Western Mass. town of Montague, about a Nov. 17 teleconference, Leveraging Know-How: The Corporate Legal Function and Outside Counsel. It will feature the DuPont Legal Model’s paralegal manager Marybeth Davies and IT manager Pam Martin.

I was even more interested to learn of the conference’s sponsor, the Society of Knowledge Base Publishers, a membership organization for information professionals engaged in managing intellectual assets in a business context. I had not heard of it before, but it appears to be a source of interesting articles and programs.
