Description
In today’s legal marketplace, the c-suite are demanding services that require new skills and mindsets from their in-house legal departments. Partly based on over 100 general counsel interviews, this interactive session explores the new expectations of the in-house legal department and the gaps that exist in skills, mindset, and behaviours. Michele De Stefano, Professor of Law at the University of Miami, will address how chief legal officers as transformational leaders can help their lawyers to meet these new expectations; and differentiate their services with creativity, collaboration, and innovation.
