This session is for all in-house lawyers and may be of particular interest to those in their early years of in-house work and those thinking of moving in-house.
In this discussion we expect to explore a range of issues relevant to this important topic, including:
• What is the core role of the in-house lawyer?
• Working with your managers and colleagues
• The wants and needs of internal clients
• What happens if they don’t seek necessary advice?
• Using external lawyers
• Making a contribution across your organisation.
• Things I learned the hard way.
Leading the discussion will be our guest presenters Nicolina Andall and Fiona Fraser. You will also have the opportunity to join in by asking questions and raising matters of interest.
