The move to hybrid work models is top-of-mind for lawyers this year. Many lawyers are opting to focus their professional development on developing skill sets that will support them while working remotely, new data from legal CPD provider LawCPD reveals.
Topics such as competent use of technology, supervision, managing cyber risk and ethical obligations while working remotely are among the most popular this year. Undoubtedly, most lawyers now have greater awareness of the challenges of remote and hybrid work, and are keen to equip themselves to manage this well.
"Although everyone is talking about hybrid work, many lawyers still struggle to successfully implement it because they don't fully understand what it means for them or their practice. There is a range of training that lawyers can do to equip themselves to identify and mitigate risks, uphold high ethical standards, and maintain strong relationships with clients and colleagues in the current context” said LawCPD co-founder Sarah Mateljan. “We are delighted to continue collaborating with a range of experts to produce online training on these topics that brings real value to lawyers.”
There is also growing demand from lawyers to learn new strategies to improve their sense of wellbeing. This development illustrates that the COVID pandemic has further emphasised the issue of mental health and resilience in the legal profession.
