The demands and challenges that in-house lawyers face can vary quite significantly from those experienced by private practice lawyers. Particularly in this current climate, as we all adapt to the impacts of the global pandemic, the need to come together to reflect and share insights is even more important.

Along with addressing common ethical issues that can arise with in-house practise, this unique session provides the opportunity to customise your learning experience. Complete a short questionnaire prior to the webinar and experienced facilitator Sue Tomat will tailor the session to respond directly to your circumstances and help maximise your potential as in-house counsel.
