"The Professional Essentials and your company's customer service are terrific. The eLearning modules are an integral part of our career advising program.

In-Demand and On-Demand
Several recent studies have shown just how important it is for firms to develop lawyers’ non-technical skills. Called “soft skills” by some – or “professional skills” by others – at LawFirmElearning, we prefer to call them Professional Essentials.
Our Professional Essentials series of bite-sized on-demand interactive courses cover the range of professional skills that are most in-demand by today’s firms – large and small. We work in partnership with our law firm clients to understand their most pressing professional skills needs and to develop law-firm-focused content and messaging targeted to meet those needs. With direct input from our firm clients on topics and messaging, these are the on-demand programs you would have created yourself if you had the time... But now you don’t have to.
Leverage these programs as designed – or have us brand them to the firm and customize to include firm-specific guidance. Either way, there’s no faster, just-in-time way to provide access to practical, actionable, law-firm-centric guidance on the range of skills that are essential to success today.
How it works...
Your subscription allows you to select up to 15, 25, 35 or 45 courses throughout the year (based on selected subscription level) to roll out to your firm.
You can choose to roll these out to your firm exactly as we've developed them or – at your option – we’ll custom-brand your selections for your firm and address any other customizations you desire. (additional charges apply)
Anyone in your firm can access any Professional Essentials course as often as they would like. At the end of the subscription period, you will have the option to renew your annual license. At that point you can opt to continue with the courses you have, swap out your current titles for new ones, or increase the number of courses you offer - adding additional topics to your library.
Answers to frequently asked questions...
How long is each course?
We are big proponents of bite-sized learning resources. Courses average about 10 minutes each - though actual lengths vary from course to course depending on topic.
Can we have links to our policies or similar added to the courses?
Yes. We can customize any element of the Professional Essentials courses to include firm-specific information, links, resources, video, terminology, etc.
Where do these courses 'live'? Do you host or do we?
Our goal is to make launching Professional Essentials courses as easy for you as possible. You have options: Host the courses on your firm's learning management system or intranet server - or let us handle hosting for you.
Where do Professional Essentials courses differ from other elearning libraries out there?
First...this isn't talking-head video. Our courses are interactive and include high-end graphics, animation, links, fast-hand drawings, scenarios, exercises, opportunities to practice new skills, and much more. In addition, Professional Essentials courses have been designed specifically for law firms. We use scenarios, examples and terminology that will resonate with lawyers and law firm staff.
Can I review the courses to see if this is a fit for our firm?
Yes. Just let us know and we'll grant you temporary access to our library of Professional Essentials courses.
