Managing and Leading an Effective In-House Legal Department Workshop (London, United Kingdom - March 7th-8th, 2019) -


The "Managing
and Leading an Effective In-House Legal Department"
has been added to's offering.

Overwhelming volumes of activity, demanding response time and shortage
of resources seem to be the fate of many legal departments. It 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
in-box and explore the options open to you. It includes discussion 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
resources 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.


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