A Strategic Leadership Workshop Series for In-House Legal, Risk, and Compliance Professionals! 

In partnership with the Canadian Corporate Counsel Association (CCCA), LexisNexis Canada invites all legal, risk, and compliance professionals to a three-part, practical training series focused on building out the business case for a well resourced in-house legal department that is appropriately equipped to meet your entity’s compliance, governance and risk objectives in 2022-2023 and beyond. 

In this three-part series, LexisNexis Canada joins members of the Canadian Corporate Counsel Association (CCCA) to lead a practical training program focused on revisioning the legal department as a value centre rather than a cost centre. Sessions will focus on:

  • Developing key metrics for documenting and reporting legal department value; 
  • Strategies to improve cost transparency, decision making and value in procurement of external counsel services and legal technology products; and
  • Best practices to build a legal department budget that will equip your team to lead confidently in Canada’s current turbulent risk landscape.

  • Professional Responsibility and Governance for In-House Legal Teams
