Enventure Research has helped the Chartered Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys CITMA) to engage with its senior paralegal members to explore how they can be better supported to continue their professional development.
CITMA has become aware of a growing demand for training and development opportunities from this group, and before designing any future content, CITMA wanted to gain insight into their experiences and preferences.
Enventure Research conducted two online focus groups with senior paralegals representing a mix of both private practice and in-house from a variety of firms/employers. During the groups, experiences of career development were explored and ideas for content and the format of future development opportunities were tested and discussed in detail.
Thematic analysis of the feedback from the focus groups was presented to CITMA in a report, which is being used to help the development of a new offering tailored for senior paralegals.
