New digital academy a first for Hogan Lovells and legal sector

Hogan Lovells pushes into digital training realm for the first time.


Hogan Lovells is to launch its first client-facing online training course, taking the firm into realms traditionally associated with e-learning providers and adding to its growing suite of LawTech products.

The new Payment Services Academy, revealed today, is designed to help those in legal, compliance, risk management, product design and operational functions understand their obligations under the UK's new payment services regulations.

"To our knowledge we are the only law firm offering digital training in this area, marking the course out as an industry first" said financial institutions partner Roger Tym, one of the course co-creators in Hogan Lovells' industry-leading payments team, alongside partners Emily Reid and Jonathan Chertkow, and counsel Julie Patient.

Commenting, Emily Reid said the course reflected the firm's desire to embrace the rapidly changing nature of the legal industry and the ways in which technology is driving change in legal services delivery:

"We live in a world where clients want to access Hogan Lovells knowledge in new ways that suit them, at times that suit them. This is about taking our world-leading insights and making them accessible to everyone, from FinTech start-ups to major financial institutions."

The Payment Services Academy offers:

  • Content that can be accessed repeatedly and at leisure, without the need for commissioning bespoke training
  • engaging and dynamic modules that turn complex concepts into straightforward, actionable advice
  • over two hours of video content that is regularly updated to cover the latest developments
  • interactive note taking and quiz functions to help embed what users have learned
  • the ability to earn certificates to demonstrate users' knowledge

It is part of Hogan Lovells' suite of LawTech products offered on, which currently cover Payments, MiFID II, FinTech and blockchain, as well as a bespoke legal publishing tool, Business Brief.  A one minute video overview of the Academy is available here.
