UCL Laws Professors lead nationwide debate on ethical leadership
22 February 2016
Calling all in-house lawyers – join the debate about improving in-house practice
In 2015, a major new project was launched to research and engage in-house lawyers on the role of the General Counsel in the context of Ethical Leadership. The project is led by Professor Richard Moorhead, Professor Stephen Mayson both of UCL Centre for Ethics and Law (CELs), Paul Gilbert of LBC Wise Counsel and Steven Vaughan of the Centre for Professional Legal Education and Research (CEPLER).
In 2015, the first phase of the project was to undertake an online survey of in-house counsel. The full results of the survey will be published this year along with the commentary of in-house lawyers in conversation with the project team.
The project team invites all in-house lawyers, regardless of sector, team size or seniority, to attend a round-table “town hall” conversation and to be part of the debate. The meetings will be held in March, April, May and June. Emerging themes from the survey will be shared and crucially this is a unique opportunity for your views to be heard. Each conversation will be under the Chatham House rule so everyone can speak freely without attribution.
