Our programme of engagement was created in close consultation with the In-house Lawyers Division committee, to ensure it is relevant and timely.
Committee members are scheduled to meet up to four times a year to discuss the key issues facing the in-house legal community. The committee advises how the Law Society can best support its members who work as in-house lawyers.
The In-house Lawyers Division committee is chaired by Sapna Bedi FitzGerald, legal services director and company secretary at LSL Property Services plc. Stephen O’Brien, lawyer from the Employment Group at the Government Legal Department is the vice-chair.
The Law Society thanks all of the committee members, whose details are included below, for their time, commitment and contribution.
