GLS 10,000 Voices

Inherently in-house lawyers will often work in a more isolated environment than their private practice counterparts.

As such, chances to share experience, cross fertilize ideas and benefit from new learnings have traditionally been unfortunately restricted.

The ambition of this project is use technology to start to change that dynamic.

Each month we survey the in-house community on a new topic and freely share the results / consolidated wisdom gathered.

Each survey is free and open to any in-house lawyer to contribute to.

The results of every survey are consolidated and anonymised, and are free to anyone that would like to learn from the data gathered.

Thank you for contributing your input and interest to this project, and helping to strengthen the in-house community.
