Yesterday, for 806 law departments the fifth report from General Counsel Metrics issued

Whew! It’s been a whirlwind of a year, and so deeply gratifying to consider that close to a thousand general counsel have benefited from the largest benchmark survey ever conducted – twice as large as all the others last year combined!

Law departments that still want to submit their data are warmly welcomed — click on the icon upper right. You will get the report, which covers 21,971 lawyers (median of 7 per department), total legal spend of $19.5 billion, and total corporate revenue of $5.3 trillion. With 20 industries, 47 countries and 8 regions, there is data for everyone who wants to learn and improve.

Thank you, all those who have helped out or taken part! Here’s to 2,000 departments in 2011!
