In January 2018, ACC launched the ACC Legal Operations Maturity Model, Toolkit and Webinar Series. The reference tool provides law department leaders the ability to benchmark maturity, gain alignment on department priorities, and enhance the operations of a legal department.

Consisting of 14 different areas, the ACC Legal Operations Maturity Model, Toolkit and Webinar Series will help in-house counsel and legal operations professionals advance from early to intermediate and advanced stages in key functions, such as financial management, legal technology, vendor management, knowledge management, compliance, contract management, and information governance, among others.

These tools will be presented in a series of monthly webinars throughout the year - led by seasoned legal operations professionals who will offer real-life experiences on how to implement improvements to the legal department. Register today for one of the webinars.
