How Covid-19 is affecting education for in-house lawyers

69.6% of in-house lawyers confirmed that Covid-19 prevented them from attending an in-person education or training event. This emerges from Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) second member flash poll – opened on May 5 and closed on May 11, with 405 randomly selected ACC members – to examine how the pandemic is impacting members. This poll focused on how education and training for the in-house community has and will likely continue to be impacted.

The results

According to the poll half of the respondent were willing to attend events in the future if additional health safety measures are enforced.  Also, 46% shared that they anticipate their education/training budget will decrease over the next year, while 29.4 % reported “no change” to their budget. An additional 27.7 percent revealed that they would only attend in-person events once a vaccine is widely available.

«Continuing legal education and training are a core requirement for in-house counsel to ensure they stay on the leading edge of innovation and information, especially in this turbulent business environment», said Veta T. Richardson, president and CEO of ACC. «These poll results touch on the concerns and challenges our members are facing with respect to one of their core responsibilities. We will use this valuable feedback to tailor both the content and opportunities for our members to receive the training they need to be successful».
