DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Managing and Leading an Effective In-House Legal Department" conference has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
Overwhelming volumes of activity, demanding response time and shortage of resources seem to be the fate of many legal departments. It needs to justify its existence and develop clarity and consensus about what it focuses on and how it is resourced. This has to be done in the context of how the organisation manages legal risk and uses legal services.
This programme enables you to take a step back from the overloaded in-box and explore the options open to you. It includes discussion on issues and solutions, with concurrent workshops, as well as the evaluation of sample materials.
Concurrent practical workshops
The programme features concurrent workshop sessions that addresses the key challenges faced by all organisations when trying to refocus resources to meet the demands of the business. The workshop is split by interest depending on whether you have a multi jurisdictional team or are based in one location.
As well as receiving full background notes and documentation, delegates will also receive a copy of the recently published publication, 'Managing In-House Legal Services'.
