Welcome to the latest edition of In-house forum, the Law Society's dedicated newsletter for lawyers working in-house in the corporate and public sectors, and not-for-profit organisations and charities.
In-house Lawyers Committee
It has been a very exciting and busy year for the committee who continues to represent, promote and support in-house members in England and Wales. Recent activities addressed compliance, pro bono, regulatory developments, continuing competence, and how to set up an ABS. Members in Birmingham, Manchester and London met to discuss these topics. For more details of our activities please see our engagement programme.
On behalf of the committee, our chair Sapna Bedi FitzGerald wishes you a wonderful Christmas and new year.

Case study: Leaders first, lawyers second
Paul Newton, chief legal officer of BUPA, talks about recruitment, and the three distinguishing factors Bupa looks for in an in-house lawyer.
Pro bono for in-house lawyers
A legal advice charity is to establish an 'honorary counsel' role as part of efforts to develop further opportunities for in-house lawyers to do pro bono work.
The Law Society's in-house solicitor of the year Annemarie Roberts was a standout winner. She has built the team within One Housing, reducing the cost of legal services as well as generating income, benefiting the organisation and its clients.
Law Society launches member-focused strategy
Following wide-ranging and open conversations with members about the Law Society's future role, we have launched a new strategy that focuses on representing, promoting and supporting solicitors.
Event: Compliance support forum for in-house lawyers
Traditionally in-house lawyers have had a long-distance relationship with the SRA but this is no longer possible. Recent changes in the law, and the introduction of the SRA Handbook, mean that in-house practice is of greater interest to the regulator than ever before and ignorance of compliance requirements is a risky position to sustain.
Event: In-house committee and Lord Clement-Jones CBE
The chair of the In-house Lawyers Division, Sapna Bedi FitzGerald, would like to invite you to attend the launch event and presentation from the in-house committee. Attendees will hear from Lord Clement-Jones CBE, solicitor and life peer who has led the legal functions at Kingfisher, Grand Metropolitan Retailing and London Weekend Television.
Event: In-house career progression
Thinking twice before taking a role in-house is important, and issues to consider may include money, risks and a rewarding career. In-house lawyers are business partners, and they need to know how the business works in order to achieve the best solution. Our panel will help members of the legal team to plan the progression of their in-house career.
Webinar: Regulatory framework and changes
This webinar addresses matters that must be considered by in-house counsel including common regulatory compliance issues, key compliance changes, should your employer be considering authorisation, and a glance into the future.
