Course Essential Toolkit for In-house Counsel


This two day course is aimed at solicitors moving in-house for the first time and will also provide a useful refresher for those returning from a career break. It gives an overview and update of the areas of law in which your advice will most commonly be sought.

The course also provides invaluable advice on integrating the legal team into a business and ‘selling’ its value to your internal client.

The content has been reviewed and improved in 2017 to include:

  • Data protection section has been fully updated for GDPR, and you will leave with a GDPR action plan
  • New commercial law section – to bring you the most recent commercial law news including new regulator guidance, court cases and legislative updates
  • Guest speakers to provide additional perspectives
