About the course

Legal risk is now an integral part of the boardroom agenda, regardless of the size of the organisation. This provides a new challenge for in-house lawyers, who can play a crucial role in ensuring that a risk-aware culture prevails across the organisation. Therefore, any successful risk management programme must start within the management and its operations. This three-day seminar will provide the guidance and information required to put in place preventive measures which will minimise your company’s exposure to risk and protect your in-house clients.
