Two practical days to understand current best practice and generate creative, value-added solutions to your management challenges.
Overwhelming volumes of activity, demanding response time and shortage of resources seem to be the fate of many in-house 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.
Some heads of legal departments have ‘no appetite’ for managing others, but find themselves in that position due to seniority. The temptation to concentrate on matter rather than people management can be great.
This programme enables you to take a step back from the overloaded inbox and explore the options open to you. It will give you the skills to achieve the balance and focus needed to succeed in your role, and includes discussion time on issues and solutions, with concurrent workshops, as well as the evaluation of sample materials to help embed learning.
Concurrent practical workshops
The programme features concurrent workshop sessions that address 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 Thorogood publication, Managing In-House Legal Services.
Please note that this seminar is relevant to whatever jurisdiction you are practising 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 jurisdictions.
