What is the Connected Legal Certification?

Many in-house legal professionals go in-house to be involved in the big picture, see issues through to the end, and play an influential role in the success of an organization. These are opportunities private practice rarely provides.

But too often, legal teams feel overworked, stressed, reactive, and sometimes, unempowered by their tools and resources. In this environment, it can become hard to be a valued partner to the business and to focus on that high-value strategic work you came in-house to do.

The Certification provides the insights, tools, and behaviors necessary to become a Connected Legal Function – a legal team that optimizes productivity, engages meaningfully with the business, acts proactively, and maximizes its impact on the business. 

It covers everything from soft skills like change management to more practical ones like how to design your intake system, all within an interactive platform with videos, quizzes, and downloadable templates to help you take action right away.
