Course Introduction to Management Skills for In-House Lawyers


Even if you currently have no aspirations to manage other in-house lawyers, you cannot afford to ignore the management skills which are needed to be successful in developing credibility with others in the organisation and respect from legal colleagues. The pressures on in-house lawyers demand the adoption of effective ways of working, not just delivering good advice and input.

Attending this course will be a key component in your development plan to meet the SRA’s continuing competence requirement, as well as providing a reminder of the professional duties you owe.

This course will equip you to develop these skills. It does not focus on the skills needed to manage subordinates, which are covered in Management Skills for Leaders of In-house Legal Teams.
