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 for not-for-profit organisations and charities.
In-house Division committee
For the remainder of this year, the committee's focus will include finalising the Law Society's in-house programme plans for 2017. We will also be monitoring the results of the Solicitors Regulation Authority's (SRA) recent consultation. We are looking forward to continuing to support members through delivering a programme of events and other activities.
With regard to what's left of 2016, we have a number of events planned including Demonstrating value - doing more for less on 5 October, and a Mitigating risk webinar on 31 October. Please also see below for details of the articles featured in our September issue of InsideOut Magazine. The next issue will be published in January 2017.
The committee is also pleased to have been successful in ensuring that the Law Society's Excellence Awards this year recognises both in-house teams and individuals.
For further details on the activities of the Division, including events, please visit the In-house Division webpage. As always, please feel free to email the Division directly to give us your thoughts, to seek our support or just to connect.

Join this webinar to gain a practical insight into how privilege works with the in-house lawyer and how this gives rise to challenges when dealing with, for example, investigations undertaken by the European Commission.
For over 15 years many UK and European businesses have transferred personal data relating to their employees, customers and suppliers to the US, relying on the US Safe Harbour scheme. However, in a groundbreaking decision (Maximillian Schrems v Data Protection Commissioner) the European Court of Justice (ECJ) has declared the European Commission's decision in favour of the US Safe Harbour scheme to be invalid.
ABSs continue to grow as businesses are looking to stand out in the market. The joining up of public services is not always backed by legislation which allows sharing of legal service, and the local authorities are becoming commissioning organisations of outsourcing work to owned or private companies (and other third party organisations). The 'Access to Justice' agenda has the potential to make some provision of services hard to reach groups.
