Welcome!

Hello and thank you for being part of the world’s first online, learning & development video channel built for in-house lawyers.

The Crafty Counsel story started when Founder & CEO, Ben White, was working as an in-house counsel in a small team and felt that the team was isolated from developments across the legal community. Ben launched the first iteration of Crafty Counsel in October 2017 and the company has since gone on to produce and publish hundreds of videos for in-house counsel and the wider legal community, amassing thousands of Crafty followers in the process.

In October 2019, we unveiled our new subscription service – bringing to the community high quality video content from the most interesting legal minds. We provide support to General Counsel and other senior lawyers with targeted, relevant content for you and your team’s development.

About Crafty

What is Crafty Counsel?

Crafty Counsel was founded to provide everyone in the legal industry with an accessible and structured learning & development resource. We have heard from many lawyers working in-house that they often experience a lack of structured L&D services and tools in their workplace, and so Crafty Counsel subscription was born.

Here at Crafty Counsel, we believe all lawyers, whether in-house or in private practice, should be able to access learning & development content easily and affordably, and which genuinely meets existing learning needs.

So we have launched our brand new subscription service and in doing so have partnered with some of the best organisations and experts, including General Counsel and lawyers from leading law firms and legal tech companies to bring you the best industry insights.

Become a subscription partner

We are always looking for expert presenters to collaborate with us on series and masterclasses for our subscription-only content. If you are interested in taking part and sharing your knowledge with the community, please contact us!

Sponsor Crafty videos

If you’d like to feature in Crafty videos which get promoted outside of our subscription paywall and which you can share with your colleagues and clients, your business or organisation can sponsor a series of videos. We work with you to produce great content in the best format and distribute the videos on our site and our social media channels, as well as featuring them in our weekly newsletter.

Bespoke video service

We also produce beautiful bespoke videos for our clients, meaning you decide the format and branding, and the videos are exclusively available for you to distribute as you wish and not shared with our Crafty audience.

WHY SUBSCRIBE?

Our video content has been curated to provide an in-depth and meaningful way of learning, but no single video lasts longer than 15 minutes, so for the first time, you can fit training around your schedule.

We provide support to General Counsel and other senior lawyers with targeted, relevant content for you and your team’s development. Many of the videos are also ideal for sharing with colleagues in the business to help you communicate aspects of your role or challenges you are facing.

The content covers technical legal topics, practical support on transforming internal legal functions and legal technology, and personal development.

The videos are organised into box sets and playlists to provide users with a curated library of content, which can also be personalised by users based on your preferences. Your 12 month subscription will be regularly refreshed and updated with new content throughout the year.

You can also download a training record of the content you’ve watched and track your learning content against the SRA competency requirements - more about this here.

Our subscription is available to purchase individually or as a team. So what are you waiting for? Getting started on your professional learning & development journey has never been easier! Sign up and purchase your subscription today or get in touch if you’d like more information.
