NEW ACC REPORT SHOWS THE VALUE OF LEGAL OPERATIONS

One of the most comprehensive reports of its kind, the 2020 ACC Legal Operations Maturity Benchmarking Report, created in partnership with Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory, analyses data for 316 legal departments of all sizes, across 29 countries, and 24 industries.

Did You Know:

  • Mature legal operations functions have shown to reduce costs and increase efficiency.
  • Most organizations, on average, do not have a mature legal department.
  • Having a legal operations professional on staff improves a legal department's maturity rate across ALL 15 functions tested.

Building on the success of ACC's legal operations maturity model, this unprecedented report identifies and assesses 15 legal operations functions and 92 sub functions and cross-indexes them by sector, size, country, and other categories. The report also includes a "best in class" index, which profiles the most mature departments. Find out how advanced your legal department is and the areas that need improvement compared to similar organizations.

CPBS 500X500 Campaign

Pro Bono HK provides free legal assistance to marginalised and disadvantaged individuals in our community. Since its launch in May 2017 to date, our community legal clinic located in Sham Shui Po has assisted over 100 clients and provided over 120 hours of legal service on a pro bono basis. Thus far, we have relied on the kindness of Solicitor volunteers working in private practice.

Due to demand, we need to expand and increase the availability of our services to other disadvantaged members of the public. Please help us to do this by donating to our Access to Justice Fund (“A2J Fund”) at: www.simplygiving.com/event/a2jfund and/or volunteering your services.

The A2J Fund will be used to cover:

  • the costs of expanding and running the community legal clinics in Hong Kong ·
  • professional indemnity insurance premiums to enable practicing solicitors working in-house to provide pro bono legal advice at our clinic

Pro Bono HK welcomes inquiries from in-house counsel and is working jointly with ACC on the Pro Bono Insurance Scheme for In-house Counsel. Please contact us at ask@probono.org.hk
