Lean into LegalOps – Fall 2020 Program
Remote Master Classes to Enhance Knowledge and Expand Your Toolkit

In March 2020, the world was changed by a global pandemic. In response to changes and challenges related to working and living in the age of COVID-19, Onit launched a virtual learning and networking program called Lean Into LegalOps. The feedback and participation were so positive, that we’ve decided to continue it with more Fall 2020 programming.

The goal of Lean Into LegalOps is to bring Onit customers and the greater in-house legal community together to share experiences, lessons and successes. This is done through a combination of formal webinars, virtual discussions, customer demonstrations and more informal check-in calls.

Join Lean Into LegalOps to get periodic updates on upcoming events and new content, as well as invitations to the virtual events and bi-monthly check-in calls.

No two legal departments have the exact same needs, and regulatory and legal requirements vary by industry and jurisdiction. This is why standard enterprise legal management (ELM) solutions often fall short.
