With COVID-19 influencing our face to face events, as well as how legal firms and professionals operate and engage with their customers, we understood the vital need to continue to provide updates and training whilst we all adapt to a world of social distancing and virtual communication.
Following extensive market research, it was apparent that the downside of attending events was the time spent commuting to venues and taking the time out of schedules. Our customers wanted their own timetable and flexibility around their learning, relevant content delivered by leading speakers. From this, we launched LAW2020 Online.
Family Law was the fourth practice area we launched as part of our LAW2020 Online line up; a series of digital content-led events designed to fulfil your training requirements at a time and place to suit you.
We were overwhelmed with the response from Family Law practitioners who joined us in making our face-to-face events possible online. Over 70 attendees participated between 14th July – 13th August to watch 4 hours of topical content from Elissa Da Costa-Waldman, Govind Singh and pre-recorded session sponsors OurFamilyWizard.
The event attendees visited the Family Law exhibition to view how LEAP Legal Software, OurFamilyWizard, Lextox Drug & Alcohol Testing and Practice Enterprise Ltd can all help you in your day-to-day practice. We added free webinars to the accounts of LAW2020 Online: Family Law attendees in exchange for engaging in special offers, additional CPD, webinars and product demonstrations from these leading suppliers.
A key highlight was the live Q&A session on 6th August, where over 35 customers watched Elissa Da Costa-Waldman, Govind Singh and James Evans from OurFamilyWizard discussing all the questions and points raised from the pre-recorded content to help Shape the Debate for the profession. We know that a date and time to suit all is just not possible and therefore we sent out the recording of the session to all paid customers. The session has been viewed multiple times since!
90% of attendees would recommend the new 6-hour CPD events to a friend or a colleague, and 99% who engaged with LAW2020 Online: Family Law would attend again.
The content from our experts have helped customers learn in a number of ways with over 90% rating it “excellent” in our post-event feedback. Customer testimonials of LAW2020 Online include:-
