The certification program is conducted in English and consists of the following components:
Online Self-pace Modules: Upon registration, participants will receive access to eight (8) online self-paced modules that will provide them with a good insight into the program curriculum before they participate in the virtual workshop.
Virtual Workshops: The second component is a series of virtual workshops (24 hours in total) that include online group projects and activities to encourage the exchange of ideas and networking with peers. These workshops are held on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday scheduled over two weeks, for three hours each day.
Final Assessment: Participants will be evaluated through in-class exercises and the final assessment. Participants will undertake a self-paced online assessment (50 multiple-choice questions) on the last day of the workshops. Those who obtain a passing score will be awarded the credential of In-house Counsel Certified (ICC).
Certification Maintenance: The ICC designation is valid for one year from the month that a candidate passes the final assessment. After the first year, ICC certificants maintain their certification by engaging in continuing legal professional development (CLPD) activities and paying an annual fee of US$95 for ACC members and US$150 for non-members.
