Precedent Manager Cooper Grace Ward
Susan Bryant has pursued a career as a precedent manager within a thriving legal
practice , the last 20 years with the same law firm Cooper Grace Ward and before
that a lengthy stint with Carter Newell.
Joining me to interview Susan is my friend and colleague Fiona Muirhead
Susan talks about:
What a precedent manager does and how they add value to legal practices;
Why you need someone with a law degree to take on that role;
How specific words have particular meanings and that changing those words
to “plain English” may change the whole meaning of a contract etc;
The difficulties of finding flexible working arrangements in the early 1990’s;
Not having applied for a job since 1993;
Networking with other precedent managers and why that has been beneficial;
A hypothesis as to why Sydney lawyers start work later in the day than
And other interesting and left field topics of conversation.
My thanks to Sue and Fiona
