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
The Hong Kong Centre for Pro Bono Service (CPBS) has relied solely on volunteers and the SoCO staff working unpaid overtime. Having an employed case manager and proper resourcing will enable us to assist more people. So our fundraising target is simple: get 500 people (at least) to donate (at least) $500. This is the minimum estimated amount we require for at least one case manager and related costs for a trial period of 6 to 12 months.
Please join us at the #500Club, so that we can make a lasting positive impact on social justice and the rule of law in Hong Kong. You can make a donation at the Simplygiving website, then share your donation on social media as well to spread the news.
