Law firm training
Law firm training needs to be impactful and concise

Law Firm Training

We have been designing and delivering law firm training for over 20 years. Our training changes as the market develops and law firms change. Lawyers and business professionals need to be competent in more soft skills than ever before. Commercial business management as well people management are particularly essential for successful lawyers and business services people.

This means that training on subjects like delegation skills, managing people and project management are essential.

We tailor our training to the culture of your firm and the needs of your participants, so that your training is relevant and impactful. Take a look at our reviews. to see what people are saying about our training.

Virtual training

We delivered our first virtual training session back in 2010. Back then, most firms preferred to have training delivered live in a classroom. Then 2020 happened and everything changed. Since March 2020 we have delivered virtual training via Zoom, Teams and other platforms for participants all over the world. This includes UK, Australia, China, UAE, across Europe, USA, Canada and South America. It is a real pleasure to work with people across the world so easily.

The differences in training virtually

There are some key differences in designing and delivering training virtually, here are some of them:


With so many possibilities for distraction, it is vital to keep the participants engaged. We work really hard to design sessions which do this from minute one, right through to the close.


Because of the need for engagement the session has to be directly relevant to all the participants. This is the case with live in-person training, but it is even more so in the virtual world. Every idea, every example, every scenario, every role play has to be relevant to their world.


With so much time spent on screen it is vital that training is concise. This means presenting an idea in a clear and understandable format. And explaining it and applying it to the participants’ day to day world in a matter of minutes. 

Training in the virtual world requires a redesign of content and approach. Take a look at our reviews to see what people say about our in-person and virtual training.

Training Reviews

Law firm training

The training of both lawyers and business professionals in law firms needs to deliver exceptional impact in both learning outcomes and value for money. Training needs to work as a useful experience for participants. The same is true in large and small firms alike. More than this law firm training has to lead to actions being implemented to achieve any kind of Return On Investment (ROI).

Law firm training from ITD

We have worked with large international firms, medium sized firms and smaller UK based firms. Our training is practical and gives participants what they need to develop their approach and improve performance.

Our approach is a blend of training and coaching. This means we deliver interesting and relevant training, and apply this to the context of the participants’ situations. In this way whatever their specific role, lawyers and business services leave our training with actions which they can put into practice straight away.

Implementing actions from training

We focus on delivering the skills and knowledge the participants need to know. But we go further than this. We have developed a unique approach to law firm training implementation. Working with our behavioural scientist we have created an action implementation tool, which gives participants the best chance of success.
We’ve all experienced and even organised great training, only for it to fall short at the implementation stage. Why don’t people put into practice what they’ve learnt? They give the training great scores. They say it has been fantastic, practical and useful. But then they don’t change. Why? At ITD we have been working hard for many years to try to understand this. Now having worked with our behavioural change scientist we have a solution.

We have developed a unique action implementation tool which helps participants to put their actions into practice.
