INVITATION  TO RESEARCH PARTNERSHIP FOR Bar Assocations, LAW FIRMS, And LAw student ORGANISATIONS

 

Invitation to research partnership 

In our survey last year, twelve law firms from four countries participated. We are now inviting law firms to join us in exploring possibilities and challenges of the new work life. The study is based on online surveys sent to bar associations, law firms, and, and law students. The surveys contain both assessments (quantitative data) and open questions (qualitative data). 

Tier 1 sponsorship participation for law firms (supporting the research with 2.500 Euros)

1. receive a firm-specific Law Firm Hybrid Work Report detailing levels of productivity, work-life balance, burnout, well-being and more, compared with industry-specific benchmarks

2. get a firm-specific presentation, specific content and internal participants chosen by the firm

3. be able to schedule a fifty minute session with Head Researcher Jens Näsström, to discuss their own firm-specific data and anything of specific interest to HR and leaders in the firm

4. invitation to all Tier 1 exclusive research webinars

5. receive invitations to all Tier 2 exclusive research webinars

Firms are welcome to sponsor without participating, which will give benefit from (3) and (4). 

Our research is fully independent, and we receive no funds from any other source. 

Tier 2 participation for law firms (no cost)

Tier 2 participation is free of charge. It means that the law firm participates in the surveys, but in contrast to sponsoring law firms will not receive any firm specific reporting, presentation, or consulting. 

Tier 2 law firms will be invited to Tier 2 exclusive research webinars, detailing outcomes of the research project.
