Helpful resources for those in-house
Here at CLL, we thought it might be useful to group together helpful, relevant resources for those within the in-house legal community.
We have scoured the internet and compiled some of the best in-house legal resources, check them out below:
The Centre for Legal Leadership
We can't have a list of in-house resources without including ourselves! We aim to provide easy to access knowledge articles, written mainly by those in-house, that have been curated based on four subjects (Progressing my Career, Leading the Team, Delivering Services and The Bigger Picture) to make it easy to navigate. We don't cover the law, just the ins and outs of your day to day, from how to ask for extra resource to managing workload. We also deliver relevant, free events and viewpoints from in-house peers.
Practical law is staple, they have a dedicated in-house resource centre that provides, articles, advice, tool-kits and more on everything to do with your role - they even use our articles!
The majority of Practical Law sits behind a paywall.
