The Corporate Counsel Show, produced by Lawyers Weekly, saw extraordinary growth during 2021 (see top 10 most downloaded episodes for this year here).

When it came to online stories, Lawyers Weekly’s subscribers were interested in a breadth of topics, from the ever-changing recruitment landscape to what constitutes best practice for law departments.

Speaking about the year that was in the in-house demographic of Australia’s legal profession, Lawyers Weekly deputy editor Jerome Doraisamy said that better understanding how best to drive one’s law department forward would be imperative in the new year.


“The list of most-read stories for the in-house market denotes a real appetite for information about the myriad issues and challenges facing law department leaders and how best to tackle those hurdles,” he said.

“Appreciating the practical solutions and strategies to ensure success in the post-pandemic new normal will most likely remain of interest for in-house counsel as we move into 2022.”
