Why You Should Attend

General Counsel Masterclass

The business environment of the future presents its challenges for the role of the corporate general counsel, which has changed substantially during the past few decades. In the past, the general counsel was an advisor. Today, the GC is expected to be a problem solver, and CEOs are increasingly relying only their own GCs for the most important advice. From building an effective legal team to meet these challenges and effectively harnessing the value of new tools and technology as well as addressing the challenge of identifying legal department KPIs, this course will lead participants to their next role as general counsel with a stronger, successful legal department.
