Professional Development in a Pandemic Study Launched Today

The COVID-19 pandemic, civil unrest, and economic downturn have impacted law firms’ professional development efforts in ways none of us could have imagined six months ago. How have firms pivoted to address these unforeseen circumstances? What worked? What didn’t? Where do we go from here?

The NALP Foundation, in partnership with the National Business Institute, has launched an exciting new research project, Professional Development in a Pandemic: The Impact of COVID, Civil Unrest and Economic Crisis, to explore how these factors have each impacted leading firms’ professional development efforts. This project will provide critical information for firms on innovations and best practices, including those that may extend beyond the pandemic.

The NALP Foundation is currently gathering data via a brief survey on key aspects of professional development at law firms over the past six months. All responses are confidential, and only aggregate results will be released in the forthcoming report. There is no cost to participate. The study results will be published in a comprehensive report, and participating firms will receive an advance report with selected key findings.

For more information about this ground-breaking study, please contact Fiona Trevelyan Hornblower, President & CEO of the NALP Foundation or Jennifer Mandery, Senior Director of Research for the NALP Foundation.
