Large or small, in-house legal departments are as varied as the businesses and organizations they serve. But there's a common thread that connects them all: you're busy. We understand that. We also understand how you work and precisely what information you need, and we've tailored this program to meet those demands. That's why this event provides an array of plenaries and breakout sessions that speak to your specific learning needs; just choose the ones best suited to your practice. Look to our roster of experienced in-house counsel and specialized practitioners to explain the latest CASL developments, provide necessary primers on "blockchain" and "fintech", and help you with legal department management, plus much more.
