The 2018 ACC Australia in-house counsel days have commenced and continue to deliver the latest insights and highlight best practice across the Australian in-house sector.

Across a total of five events in Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth, Sydney and Canberra, the in-house counsel days feature a diverse line-up of industry thought leaders and influencers.

Featured speakers include: 2017 Young Lawyer of the Year winner, Michael Hogan, general counsel of Wormald; Dan Gregory, CEO of the Impossible Institute; and 2017 Government Lawyer of the year, Annette Musolino, chief counsel at the Australian Department of Human Services.

Featured sessions on the in-house counsel day schedules have included sessions on unconscious bias, pro-bono for in-house teams, as well as dedicated CLO (chief legal officer) Club roundtables.

Adelaide and Melbourne have held their events already, with Perth scheduled for 2 May, Sydney for 23 May and Canberra on 5 July.

Launched at the 2017 ACC Australia National Conference, the CLO Club consists of small group discussions on particular issues relevant to legal department managers. CLO Club topics during the 2018 in-house counsel day series include staff management and succession planning, and cybersecurity and the board of directors.
