In-House Counsel are faced with many challenges. The job can include a huge variety of topics, depending upon the activities of their organisation. So, company lawyers have to be flexible and adaptable when their operational colleagues invite contribution from the legal department. In this training programme, company lawyers will have their skills refreshed and developed.

The course curriculum addresses how the company lawyer fits into the organisation and how he or she acts as an interface to external legal advisers. It looks at the complementary role of the company secretary (who may be a lawyer) and his or her value to the Board of Directors and to the maintenance of high standards in corporate governance. The programme spends one day on the resolution of legal disputes and another on the negotiation, structuring and drafting of contracts and other documents.
