General Counsel & Chief Legal Officer Course




Law School and private practice do not prepare you for managing or leading a legal function within a business. The very technical skills which get you promoted may well hinder the successful progression to a general leadership role, where people management and relationships are key, rather than tasks.

The competencies necessary for lawyers to create, sustain and lead a successful in-house legal department, including a real understanding of what the in-house role involves and the ability to operate at a multi-faceted level, require deliberate and active upskilling.

This 3 day course is designed specifically for in-house lawyers keen to meet the demands of business leaders who want their lawyers to deliver increasingly client-focused levels of service and continue their evolution as true partners in the business.

If you are looking to work more effectively and efficiently with others, build and maintain successful and professional relationships, and learn to adapt and use your skills confidently and effectively in a multidisciplinary environment, then this interactive and highly practical course will help you to discover with insight, knowledge, ideas and skills how to connect, communicate, collaborate and contribute for better personal performance, team effectiveness and organisational impact.

The program will highlight valuable skills essential for success in a business environment, and will provide a useful forum for networking and sharing experiences. Delegates will be able to contribute to numerous group discussions, as well as draw upon the extensive experiences of each other and the Trainer.
