The novel coronavirus is expected to usher in a “new normal” to every aspect of life, from education to how we dine out. And it’s predicted to change the legal profession as well. Some observers say legal’s massive shift to remote working will weaken the profession’s dependence on office space and perhaps increase the usage of alternative legal service providers (ALSPs).
But even a global pandemic won’t be able to shake legal out of all its habits. Notably, legal’s views on technology pre-coronavirus are likely to continue after lawyers emerge from shutdowns. From not increasing tech spend to continued deference to time tracking, there’s strong indications the profession won’t change as much as some expected.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.
