Delivered by Cambridge Law Firm, Taylor Vinters, this half day course is delivered by a senior lawyer or consultant who has run the international in-house legal team of a multi-national. This prevents an overly ‘external counsel’ approach and will make the content more relevant to people working in a corporate environment.
