Managing and Leading an Effective In-House Legal Department

Course Overview

Two practical days to understand current best practice and creative value-added solutions to your management challenges

Overwhelming volumes of activity, demanding response time and shortage of resource seem to be the fate of many legal departments. The department needs to justify its existence and develop clarity and consensus about what it focuses on and how it is resourced. This has to be done in the context of how the organisation manages legal risk and uses legal services.

This programme enables you to take a step back from the overloaded inbox and explore the options open to you. It includes discussion time on issues and solutions, with concurrent workshops, as well as the evaluation of sample materials.

Concurrent practical workshops

The programme features concurrent workshop sessions that addresses the key challenges faced by all organisations when trying to refocus resource to meet the demands of the business. The workshop is split by interest depending on whether you have a multi jurisdictional team or are based in one location.

PLUS

As well as receiving full background notes and documentation, delegates will also receive a copy of the recently published Thorogood publication, Managing In-House Legal Services.

Who Should Attend?

  • Heads of legal teams or those aspiring to manage other lawyers
  • Legal affairs directors and managers
  • Private practice lawyers contemplating a move to a senior in-house role

Please note that this seminar is relevant to whatever jurisdiction you are practicing in. It is relevant to those working in one in-house team in one location as well as those working in dispersed in-house teams covering several jurisdiction.
