Insights: Publications CLOC Unveils IP Core Competencies Model
At its 2019 Vegas Institute in May 2019, the Corporate Legal Operations Consortium (CLOC) debuted a new intellectual property (IP) core competencies model, which provides a practice-specific lens through which legal operations professionals can view the best practices and industry standards defined by CLOC.
Since its inception in 2016, CLOC’s calling card has been its 12 core competencies that “represent areas of focus that every legal operations department must manage to have a disciplined, efficient, and effective legal operations function.” Legal operations professionals can use CLOC’s model to gauge their organization’s level of maturity—foundational, advanced, and mature—by benchmarking itself against others in the industry for each competency. CLOC has also worked to define the contours of legal operations with initiatives covering topics such as legal project management (LPM), diversity and inclusion efforts, and metrics.
