The reason our courses are more valuable than others on the market is that ours are tailored for in-house counsel. Other legal courses try to be something for everyone; they're purposely made generic and marketed towards everyone: in-house counsel, private practice legal professionals, industry professionals, students, government, etc. By focussing our courses for in-house counsel, we can ensure everything you learn is highly relevant to your day to day as an in-house lawyer.
Who is this course for?
This course is useful for in-house counsel at all stages who are interested in learning practical tips to navigate common employment law issues.
What's the format of the course?
