IHLGNI AGM and Information Session
The In-House Legal Group NI (IHLGNI) recently held its AGM and put on an information session for its members, in association with A&L Goodbody.
It has been a very successful year for the IHLGNI during which it has expanded its membership to over 200 in-house lawyers in Northern Ireland and organised a number of professional CPD events, covering a range of issues and topics in-house lawyers face, as well as social events such as wine tasting.
At the AGM, the following people (pictured) were elected to serve on the IHLGNI committee for the forthcoming year: Lisa Armstrong (Belfast City Council), Sean Grego and Sinead McAroe (both from Citi), Elma McEneaney and Conall McMahon (both from Kainos), Niall McSorely (Baker McKenzie) and Anne MacRandal (Autism NI).
Following the AGM, an Information Session was held for the 110 people in attendance. During this session, which was designed for in-house legal professionals, senior lawyers from A&L Goodbody discussed recent commercial contracts updates and tips for influence, persuasion and negotiation.
This was followed by a key-note presentation from James Stebbing, Senior Legal Counsel at the Rugby Football Union, who gave an insight into his carer to date along with the challenges he has faced as an in-house legal counsel.
The IHLGNI has organised two further CPD events for November (on GDPR, in association with Cleaver Fulton Rankin Solicitors) and December (details to be confirmed soon). Information on these, and future events, will be shared via email for members of the IHLGNI, and through the Group’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/inhouselegalgroupNI/).
Any In-House Lawyers in Northern Ireland who wish to join the membership of the IHLGNI, or would like more information about the Group, or the events it organises, can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
