Executive Education supporting the GCs of tomorrow
With ever changing business priorities and expectations, the role and skillset of the general counsel is evolving. Increasingly, the job description includes the responsibility of more than just the “day job” of purely legal work.
GCs are required to be part of general business considerations, be mindful of new technology to improve process efficiency, and sustainably lead teams of high-performing lawyers. The role requires GCs to be well-rounded professionals, with skills beyond legal technical excellence.
