Join us in February 2022 for our Introduction to ESG Seminar.

As Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors take centre stage, considerations around climate impact and carbon emissions, diversity and inclusion, human rights and corporate governance strategies are increasingly informing investment and boardroom decisions. The rise of ESG brings with it increased risk of reputational damage and costly litigation to businesses should they fall behind. It is ever more important for lawyers to bring awareness of ESG factors into their practice.

Whether you work in-house or in private practice, this seminar will provide you with an introduction to the multifaceted world of ESG. Our expert speakers will guide you through the important issues and discuss the present and future impacts of ESG on the legal sector.

Learning outcomes:

  • Learn about the increasing importance of ESG factors in the business context
  • Understand which key issues fall under each of the environmental, social and governance factors
  • Gain an appreciation of how ESG impacts on the legal sector now and in the future
