BATON ROUGE- Flores MBA Program senior instructor James S. Fargason recently conducted a joint workshop for IIA Alaska and Hawaii, a group dedicated to accounting, auditing, and internal controls, titled “How to Reduce Legal Costs and Improve Legal Outcomes.”

On September 9, 2020, Fargason used a virtual platform to address participants from a variety of industries.  The focus of the program was on preventive controls for channeling legal operations and moving the legal team to better results. He also discussed the methods for managing and monitoring contracts.

“This topic of this workshop is crucial for those organizations trying to contain legal costs while securing better legal results,” said Fargason. One participant in the workshop commented that “the seminar was very informative, filled with practical advice on value-added cost savings regarding the efficiency and effectiveness of a legal department.”
