Watch On Demand
Hosted by Thomson Reuters
According to the 2022 Legal Department Operations (LDO) Index, corporate law departments continue to face cost control challenges, increasing workloads, and staffing concerns – along with newer challenges involving technology adoption and environmental, social & governance (ESG) priorities.

Join Thomson Reuters for a webinar in which legal leaders examine the findings of the 2022 LDO Index and discuss how best-in-class law departments are transforming in the face of these changes. Join us to learn:
  • How are departments controlling costs by increasing internal headcount?
  • How have top departments managed increasing matter volumes with flat or declining budgets?
  • What kinds of Legal Tech are worth implementing quickly, and which should come later?
  • Who is actually making ESG programs work?
  • And more.
The webinar will be broadcast January 19, 2023 at 10AM CT. Sign up now and view live or on-demand any time afterward.
