IN-HOUSE counsel members of the Corporate Lawyers’ Association of New Zealand and members of the Australian Corporate Lawyers Association can now share in the benefits of resources that their US and global counterparts already enjoy after an agreement last week between the two organisations and the US-based Association of Corporate Counsel.

The agreement allows members of the Australian Corporate Lawyers Association (ACLA) and the Corporate Lawyers Association of New Zealand (CLANZ), who are in-house counsel, to access the Association of Corporate Counsel’s (ACC’s) online resources.

Meaning access to resources such as the award winning monthly journal the ACC Docket, a range of articles, precedents, surveys, benchmarking data, and resources specifically designed for corporate counsel, the agreement was an attempt to bring broader benefits to members of each of the organisations.

ACLA chief executive Peter Turner explained that together, ACLA and CLANZ represented thousands of in-house lawyers across Australia and New Zealand, and “individually and together, we are always looking for ways to help our members deliver more value to their employers — companies and government organisations across Australia”.

Arguing ACC had been “delighted” to work with CLANZ and ACLA over the years, president Fred Krebs said this included sharing information and ideas through various means.

“By providing their members with access to ACC’s award winning and extensive online resource base we’re adding an exciting new element to the wider relationship between our organisations and bringing advantages to our own members working in Australia, New Zealand, and other locales overseas,” Krebs said.
