2021 In-house Trends Survey

Trends Survey

Research into the in-house profession is one of ACC Australia’s core commitments and one of the main reasons we conduct an In-House Trends survey. 

This year’s Trends Survey has a particular interest in changes experienced to workload and legal teams during the pandemic, direct briefing, legal technology, legal operations, and workflow. The survey will take 5-10 minutes to complete.

There are two prizes up for grabs just for completing this short survey; 2 x $1000AUD credits to spend on any ACC Australia event or program between April 2021 to 30 June 2022. This includes National Conference ticket registration, an In-House Counsel Day ticket registration, CPD sessions or the mentoring program, plus others!
