Leading and managing others

2022 Development sessions

  • Event date: 14 September 2022 08:30 AM
  • Event type: Discussion
  • Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
  • Provided by: The Centre for Legal Leadership

Now in its 4th year, the CLL Development Programme is an interactive programme built around all those matters that matter to in-house lawyers and covering skills, management, leadership, strategy, relationships and career. It’s open to all in-house lawyers, wherever you work and whatever your level of experience. 

Each session emphasises a different aspect of the in-house lawyer’s role and career and we encourage participants to bring along any issues of particular interest to them.

In this session, we will discuss what makes a good manager, the importance of managing up and sideways, getting recruitment and induction right, and structuring and resourcing the legal team. We will also look at the differences between leadership and managing and the essence of good leadership. 

At some point in your in-house career, you may well be responsible for managing other lawyers and, possibly, other specialists also. Whether you feel well prepared or not for this, there’s no doubt that it will bring new challenges and responsibilities. Yet, managing others well is often an important requirement for advancing to senior legal and other roles in organisations. And is being a leader the same as being a good manager or can you be one without being the other?

Discussion points will include: 

  • Leading versus managing;
  • Managing up, down and sideways;
  • Getting recruitment and induction right; and
  • Structuring and resourcing. 

The sessions last for 90 minutes and start at 8.30 am to fit in with our participants’ schedules. They take place under Chatham House rule and we don’t record the sessions or publicise attendance.

Attendance is free. You can attend all the sessions or any combination of them.
