HomeDefining the Legal Ops Career Path

Purpose of Project

The purpose of this project is to create a defined career path for legal operations professionals in order to create a market standard role structure and pay bands.

Key Goals

Create a market standard career structure for legal operations professionals

Make the legal ops career a visible alternative to practising law


  • What the market considers a legal ops professional to be
  • What the market considers the standard role structure in each setting to be
  • What skills are required to fulfil those roles and assess gaps in sources of training
  • What the market considers fair pay bands for each role to be

How we will run the Project

This is an all-inclusive project that will absorb viewpoints from legal ops professionals in various settings, including within law firms, in-house or in consultancies.

The project will be managed by Marc May, Emma Sorrell and Alex Herrity – and will be supported by others that are able to facilitate different disciplines within the legal operations space. The project will be a mix of research and workshops conducted over a four month period.

Who can get involved?

This is a collaborative project and any legal operations professional is more than welcome to join. There are currently around 70 legal operations professionals from law firms, in-house or consultancy around the world participating in this project.


If you’d like to get involved with the project or have any questions about it please direct them to Marc May here.
