Get Ready!

Test your Bandwidth
Get your remote environment ready, test home router and bandwidth to ensure a smooth flow. To attend this event, you will need the most updated version of Chrome or Firefox. To ensure the best connection, internet speeds of 5 mbps+ are highly suggested. Test your speed using Systems Check . If possible, a wired connection is much more stable and will help prevent dropped connections and interference. To increase your bandwidth, close all programs and applications during the event.

Let the Show Begin!

Once the event opens, become familiar with the lobby. Watch the welcome and orientation video. Then jump right over to the Opening Remarks session. There will be many of us to help guide you from session to session – if you need to come back to the lobby and visit the CLOC information desk, help is a click away.

Tips and Tricks While Online

Maximize networking opportunities by preparing your introduction ahead of time. At the start of each networking session, there will be dedicated time for individual introductions--come prepared with 2-3 sentences on your background. By writing your introduction ahead of time, you can simply copy and paste to the chat feature when prompted and spend more time connecting with your peers. If you’re able to share some of your best practices, bring them! Tell fellow participants something that you found inspiring, share some good news, or ask a question with a positive spin.

After the Event

Take Action
You’ll leave the 2020 Global Institute overwhelmed by the amazing amount of new information, products, programs, processes, services, and resources that you’ve uncovered. Go over your notes and review the presentations. You now have access to several resources, checklists, and guidebooks and the good news is that you can review the recorded content up to 60 days after.

Make a Plan
Integrate what you’ve learned. Focus on quick wins and slowly transition to larger scale projects. If you try to integrate everything you learned into your practice all at once, you’ll become overwhelmed. Implement slowly. In other words, no need to boil the ocean, just focus on the pot of hot water. Once you’ve mastered one, move on to the next, and the next, and the next, until it’s time for the next CLOC Institute! In the meantime, utilize the content and resources available to you at CLOC.org and if you are a member or law firm participant.
