In partnership with:

More and more law firms are looking for tangible impact from embedding ESG into their company strategy. Navigating both the internal opportunities and challenges, as well as knowing how best to assist clients with their own ESG programmes, is a growing need throughout law practice.

To support those responsible for delivering ESG development, the Business School at the University of Law in partnership with University College London will explore how law firms should approach effective ESG strategy and action.

Through expert-led panel presentations, discussions and workshops, this face-to-face training course will also enable you to take back learnings to your own business to enable you to effectively move your own ESG strategy forward.

This 1-day course will cover:

  • The imperatives of ESG management in the business of law
  • Import of diversity and inclusion in the ESG mandate
  • ESG challenges and opportunities
  • Transforming to an ESG culture
  • ESG transformation in the practice of law and its clients

£600 per delegate.
