4:00 PM - 5:30 PM Legal Upheaval: Exploring the New Expectations of General Counsels
In today’s legal marketplace, clients are demanding service by in-house legal departments that require a new skill set and a new mindset from their lawyers. Based in part on over 100 interviews of General Counsels of large, international corporations and heads of innovation at law firms around the world, this interactive session first explores the new expectations of in-house lawyers and the gaps that exist in skills, mindset, and behaviours. It then turns to address how in-house senior leaders can help their lawyers meet these new expectations and differentiate their services with creativity, collaboration, and innovation. At various points throughout the keynote, participants will be asked to participate in reflection exercises designed to promote the exploration of a) the ideal mindset, skillset, and behaviours of lawyers; and b) the legal department of the future.
