In addition to 24/7 breaking legal news and in-depth features on business of law issues, Law360 Pulse will release a series of insightful surveys, rankings and reports on law firm practices and industry trends to keep law firms and legal departments better informed. The first report, titled Physical Space in a Pandemic: How Law Firms are Adapting, was issued today alongside a broader series on how COVID-19 has impacted the business of law. Future content will include compensation data, attorney satisfaction, and surveys on managing partners and summer associates.
