About the Summit

The essential, must-attend event for in-house professionals.

The role of in-house legal professionals continues to grow in importance but also in scope. Amidst myriad environmental challenges and opportunities, it is imperative that corporate counsel give themselves, and their teams, the best possible chance to develop and succeed.

In 2022, the Corporate Counsel Summit will be held in Sydney, NSW. This must-attend law event has been curated to equip all in-house professionals, from GCs and CLOs to legal ops professionals, company secretaries and junior counsel with the necessary vocational and practical skills to navigate the ongoing turbulence of the marketplace.

Lawyers Weekly will give you the opportunity to acquire the latest insights and trends that are shaping the way of the future, helping you navigate through this intense climate of great change.

With expert-led sessions, keynote addresses, fireside chats, networking opportunities and one-on-one conversations with product service providers, this event will set the benchmark for professional development to thrive in a post-pandemic environment.

Arm yourself with the must-know strategies and tools to be a force in the industry. Secure your place now.
