Practical Law for in-house legal departments

Let our legal experts empower yours

As an in-house lawyer, you're expected to provide answers on a broad range of legal issues quickly and confidently. This isn't always easy, especially when you face questions on issues outside your areas of expertise. But there is a solution that can help.

Practical Law's how-to guides and resources equip you and your team with the practical tools, know-how and insight you need to enhance your role as your organisation's trusted adviser.

We understand that in-house lawyers work differently to their law firm counterparts and that your legal problems rarely involve just one area of the law. Our In-house Centre draws all of these resources together in a way that works for in-house counsel, and also includes over 100 additional resources dedicated to in-house-only topics and skills, together with exclusive training presentations for simultaneous upskilling of the legal team and the wider business, and for fulfilling your CPD requirements. 

I know what it takes to run an in-house team, manage competing business interests and juggle everyday work and time pressures ... The In-house Centre gives you the keys to create and run an efficient and effective legal team.
