CITATION UPON INDUCTION INTO THE COLLEGE
In every field, there are the pioneers who inspire, motivate, and encourage those around them. Chris Boyd’s passion for innovation, desire to teach, and leadership have made him a legend in the fields of knowledge management and professional development. Serving as Senior Director of Professional Services at Wilson Sonsini — a law firm known for representing some of the most innovative technology companies – it is only natural that Chris would take the lead in developing innovative services for clients, such as the WSGR Term Sheet Generator, one of the first self-service online tools offered by a major law firm.
Chris’ leadership of ILTA’s KM Peer Group has resulted in resounding success for the group’s publications, conference sessions, and activities. Individuals newly entering the field can expect soon to get an email from Chris inviting them to join a committee, publish an article or post, or to just have lunch. Many of our current Fellows consider Chris to be an important mentor. In that spirit, we welcome Chris as a Fellow of the College of Law Practice Management.
