Managing the Professional Fitness of a Firm Is Hard.

Let’s make it easier.

Imagine having an analytics tool, like a fitness tracker, for your firm’s lawyers. But rather than monitoring physical fitness, it focuses on professional fitness.

AvvyPro offers law firms a way to monitor and respond to the aggregate data gathered from lawyers’ professional self-assessments. The data-driven insights help you understand the collective strengths and weaknesses of the firm’s lawyers and associates, guiding your strategic decisions on professional development and resource allocation.

AvvyPro transforms lawyer self-assessments into powerful organizational intelligence.

AvvyPro Professional Self-Audits

Identify blindspots and lower risk.

Just like looking in the mirror to catch an undone button, a legal practice self-audit runs lawyers through the most important best practices they should be aware of, and lets them pin flags in those requiring attention.

In fact, a New South Wales study found that lawyers who used comprehensive, self-guided legal practice audits got back a 60% lower risk of regulatory related issues over time. (Source: Office of the NSW Legal Services Commissioner).

AvvyPro offers a suite of self-guided legal practice audits focusing on important areas of professional legal practice. Cyber Security, Wellness, Office Systems and many more. Each audit documents dozens of Professional Objectives and Best Practices used by top performing lawyers, for your firm to use as reference model. And your busy lawyers needn’t worry: the tool’s efficient technology-enhanced process gets them through each module in about the time it takes to eat lunch.

Professional Self-Audits – How It Works

AvvyPro’s model of professionalism is the result of over 10 years of working with North American legal regulators and Bars developing professional audit tools for their legal jurisdictions. The audit model focuses on the areas of legal professionalism that are known to hold the most risk to lawyers, based on real-world data from regulators themselves. This gives lawyers a trusted working model of professionalism designed to reduce risk in the shortest possible time.

Quality substantive content aside, the audit’s ‘Professional Stack’ is also of high value. This framework was developed to structure the substantive audit content in a logical way that lets lawyers get through the process as quickly and painlessly as possible. It keeps the daily work being done connected to the highest professional aspirations the firm aims to achieve. Many lawyers have expressed appreciation for the framework’s ability to take the long and complex code of professional conduct, and delivers it in an easy to consume, common sense format.

Most professional self-assessments end up in a drawer never to be looked at again. AvvyPro believes if a lawyer is willing to put in the effort required to do a comprehensive assessment, it should return some utility and a solid return on that investment of their time!

To accomplish this, AvvyPro takes the quantitative scoring input by a lawyer to create a “Professional Priorities” report. It analyzes and prioritizes the lowest scoring Objectives and Best Practices, so a lawyer can see at a glance where they should be focused. Step one. Then, step two and to close the loop, AvvyPro connects those Professional Priorities to high quality third party resources they can dive into, to build competencies related to their priorities.

And professional self-assessment is never a “one and done” exercise. It is a continuous process, regardless whether a lawyer is in their first year of call, or close to retirement. So AvvyPro was designed and built as a system, a continuous tool that helps lawyers maintain their competitive edge year after year.

AvvyPro comes with an onboard Resource Library containing resources that perfectly align with the sections, Objectives, and Best Practices of the self-audit. The stock library has been hand curated by the regulatory teams of multiple jurisdictions, and contains the resources regulators and their professional development teams value most.

AvvyPro’s Resource Library is constantly being updated with the latest resources across a variety of domains – information security, financial management, and a the critically important area of lawyer wellness.

And, for those firms that chose to host a customized domain on AvvyPro, the resource library is theirs to modify and populate with the firm’s own preferred learning resources.

AvvyPro is trusted by legal organizations across Canada and the US
