In-house lawyers – are you prepared to meet the challenges for growth and innovation in 2020?

Designed to equip in-house counsel with practical skills to identify and exploit key opportunities for innovation, development and growth within the workplace, the Certificate in Strategic Development for the In-House Lawyer commences on 17 January 2020.

The phenomenal growth in in-house legal service provision demonstrates the value in having legal services managed in-house. As in-house lawyers increasingly become “trusted advisors” for their organisations, the need to be able to communicate and operate effectively within a non-traditional legal environment is essential. 

Developing the in-house function and the delivery of legal services that meet the needs of the organisation requires an understanding of how the organisation itself works: collaborating and managing the intricacies of the organisation’s structure and identifying where development of in-house legal services requires innovative solutions – how well equipped are in-house lawyers to identify, promote, and communicate these solutions to the organisation? 

This course harnesses participants’ commercial awareness and focuses on developing the capability to identify opportunities for expansion and innovation, along with the know-how to take advantage.

The certificate essentially focuses on the “business of doing legal business” and takes a practical approach: during the course, you will work on a plan of action to enable you and your in-house practice to increase your foothold within the organisation, to improve service delivery in an existing practice area, or to diversify into a new one. 

Deploying validated legal, commercial, and strategic nous to address the challenges faced by modern organisations whether professional firms, commercial entities, not-for profit, or public sector organisations, you will develop and present a plan of action that is coherent and complements your in-house practice’s existing expertise – without requiring significant investment in resources. Your organisation is also free to contribute to the plan, as it is designed for practical implementation.

This course is ideal for established in-house counsel in both commercial and public sector organisations interested in leveraging their expertise and role as trusted advisors, raising their profile and value within the organisation, and expanding the influence exercised by the in-house function.
