The Inside Job is aimed at corporate counsel and in-house lawyers – General Counsel, Head of Legal and experienced in-house lawyers by whatever title. It is especially relevant for lawyers new to an in-house role or considering a move in-house, whether immediately or as part of a longer-term career development plan.
The Inside Job covers the key elements of an in-house legal role: (1) From the outside looking in; (2) The view from inside; (3) Privilege and ethics; (4) Legal risk and compliance; (5) Soft skills. It shows how legal skills acquired in private practice must be adapted to the imperatives of the business and how specialist legal knowledge is often less important than a broader understanding of the business implications of particular actions.
It also will be of interest to lawyers in private practice as well as legal executives, company secretaries and those in associated functions, such as compliance.
