As parts of the world begin to reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic, many in-house lawyers are cautious but willing, under certain circumstances, to venture outside for continuing legal education and training, according to the latest COVID-19 member flash poll from the Association of Corporate Counsel. 

Of the 405 randomly selected ACC members who responded to the May 5-11 online poll, nearly 45% said they’d be willing to go to educational events—but only if health safety measures are being enforced, such as limited attendance, social distancing and having attendees wear personal protective equipment. The ACC has more than 45,000 in-house lawyer members throughout the world.
