The importance of in-house counsel maintaining independence, and the consequences of not maintaining that independence, has been highlighted in recent times in a series of Royal Commissions, Government inquiries and litigation. These public hearings have illustrated issues as to the practical application of independence obligations of in-house counsel and how conflicts with independence obligations can manifest in providing legal advice and the application of legal professional privilege to in-house counsel.

Our team will cover:
• Understanding legal privilege: the basics and beyond
• Exploring different categories of privilege
• Practical applications for in-house counsel
• Relevant case studies

This session will be relevant for all in-house counsel roles.

This webinar is open to all organisations, excluding other legal service providers.
