Abstract:The objective of this paper is to deepen our understanding of the factors that increase or lessen employees' tendencies to engage in knowledge-sharing behaviours. First, the case of law firms is discussed. Next, a potential research model and hypotheses are presented. Potential determinants of intentions to share knowledge in law firms include professional image, enjoyment in helping others, knowledge repository, professional self-worth, professional reputation, personal attitude, and usefulness of IT systems. Future research might pursue revision and empirical testing of the research hypotheses developed in this paper.
