New York, NY, June 2, 2020 – Experiential legal learning platform, AltaClaro, and Lex Mundi, the world's leading network of independent law firms, today announced plans to roll out AltaClaro's Virtual Training Bootcamps and Master Classes to Lex Mundi network members worldwide.
“We’re excited about how this new offering supports the development of our associates and rising stars across the network and fosters strong working relationships between firms,” says Suzanne Fine, Vice President of Professional Development, Lex Mundi. “With access to more than 21,000 attorneys worldwide, our network represents the largest global footprint in legal service solutions. We’re able to deliver high quality and consistency among our member law firms because we have always been committed to providing innovative tools and technologies to our network.”
The decision follows a successful pilot conducted in February for invited associates across seven firms in seven countries. Participants rated the program with a Net Promoter Score of 47 (on par with the most beloved brands in the world like Apple and Amazon), and 84% of participants found the program to be “indispensable.” All firms participating in the pilot reported that the program provided interactive, top-tier instructional material and live facilitation that accelerated the participants’ understanding of the subject matter and gave them the practical skills they need to succeed as lawyers.
“Quality is the foundation of everything we do at Lex Mundi. Providing our members with the highest quality of training in business and legal skills is a crucial element in how we support our member firms and clients in delivering consistently high quality in every location,” says Helena Samaha, President & CEO of Lex Mundi. “We have always looked for more effective and efficient ways to deliver that training and in fact our discussions to partner with AltaClaro predate the COVID19 crisis. As such it is a great example of how Lex Mundi's approach to innovation, and the application of technology, has equipped us to provide our member firms and clients with the service and support they expect and deserve through the worst of the crisis.”
AltaClaro’s experiential training provides personal legal learning at scale, accelerating learning by combining realistic simulated work product with personalized feedback. This unique experiential framework leverages the latest technology and education science, improving competency and retention by 80% over typical online courses. The new offering builds on Lex Mundi’s long-standing commitment to cultivating professional development among network members and will become a cornerstone member benefit for the network.
Lex Mundi is the first legal network to offer this type of interactive online legal training, affording its member firms the opportunity to reduce training costs and maximize efficiency: with AltaClaro’s tech-driven and interactive solution, the firms are able to expand training opportunities while leveraging AltaClaro’s leading subject matter experts, allowing partners to focus on client work. Through this enterprise-level agreement, Lex Mundi member firms will receive preferential rates for AltaClaro’s Virtual Bootcamps and Master Classes.
“We’re thrilled to expand our relationship with an innovator like Lex Mundi,” says Abdi Shayesteh, CEO, AltaClaro. “Our experiential platform was built for Lex Mundi’s global delivery model – giving member firms the ability to equalize associate training across geographies in an accelerated, cost-effective model.”
