The Effective In-House Lawyer

We are delighted to be collaborating with The University of Law in bringing directly to you this exciting, newly developed two half-day course drawing on expertise from members across the in-house legal community.

  • Event date: 05 July 2023 10:00 AM
  • Event type: Course
  • Provided by: The University of Law and The Centre for Legal Leadership

The Course introduces delegates to the different skills required to operate effectively as an in-house lawyer and takes a pragmatic look at what a business expects from their in-house lawyer and how this can be achieved.


Aimed at those new or returning to an in-house role as well as any lawyer who wants to better understand about life working in-house.

Delegates will:-

  • be introduced to the dual role of the in-house lawyer as both lawyer and business advisor;
  • learn about the different competencies and behaviours which must be demonstrated by an in-house lawyer to be valued by their organisation;
  • be introduced to the concept of the "enduring needs" of an organisation; and
  • undertake tasks relating to key performance indicators, risk identification, financial analysis and evaluating in-house efficiency.

By the end of the course you will:

  • understand the regulatory and legal obligations which apply to in-house lawyers;
  • be able to identify the additional skills you may need to acquire to fulfil the competencies required of in-house lawyers;
  • gain an initial understanding of how risk is measured in an organisation and the nature of control measures;
  • understand the importance of key performance indicators and financial metrics when operating in-house; and
  • understand the increasing importance of technology on the role of the in-house team.

The course is being held virtually, with Part 1 taking place on 5 July and Part 2 following on 6 July.

An individual place costs £399+VAT (to attend both sessions).

Attendees will receive a certificate of attendance from ULaw/CLL upon completion and have early access to future discounted courses and membership to networking events as this Alumni group grows.

You’ll benefit from significant input from experienced GCs and members of CLL and who will be appearing online throughout the course sessions.
