Are you embarking on an in-house career?

Join us in Perth for insights, debate, and practical training given by experienced in-house lawyers and expert guidance from Law Society of Scotland colleagues. New features included to help meet your needs include our morning mini-roundtable and afternoon workshop where we will discuss in-house practice, and learn more about in-house risk in ‘Identifying risk and understanding your organisation’s risk appetite’. 

This course will appeal to those who have recently moved in-house in both the public and private sectors. The programme has been specifically designed to support and guide new in-house solicitors or those going into a solo legal counsel role or a small in-house team.

We will explore the unique challenges faced by in-house communities, and reflect upon the distinctive relationships with employers and different business functions.

The course will help answer questions such as:

  • How do you succeed in the transition from private practice to in-house?
  • What does it mean to advise an organisation with a whole new set of questions and expectations than those faced before?

You will also be able to share your experiences and participate in two facilitated group discussions applying ethical dilemmas and challenging internal dynamics to professional practice related case studies.
