KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS, NETWORKING
The Retail and Consumer Network is a partnership between AG and an ever-growing cohort of in-house advisors from some of the largest international brands in the retail and consumer industry.
The Network, comprised of two sub-groups – LEARN and LEAD – provides a collaborative environment where in-house lawyers receive technical training on a regular basis as well as the forum and opportunity to network with their peers in the industry.
The Learn group provides bi-monthly technical legal training on key issues that are likely to affect your day-to-day practice as an in-house advisor, as well as training on the key "soft" skills needed to become a trusted advisor within your business. These sessions are suitable for paralegals through to 4 years PQE, or those who are more experienced and simply want to refresh their skills.
The Lead group is for those who are 3-4 years PQE and beyond who are faced with increased responsibility and reporting obligations in their organisation. The group provides an opportunity to sound-board off of peers and receive detailed and focused training, including roundtable discussions on key topics guided by AG lawyers with expertise in that field.
"The [Network] is a forum we encourage and promote to our junior lawyers, it’s a space that provides regular high quality training and materials which not only benefit our junior lawyers but the wider legal team and business."
"It's an innovative way for junior lawyers to collaborate and discuss our collective challenges. AG introduce us to a range of concepts and encourage us to share common experiences in a comfortable, supportive and confidential space. This enables me to be open and curious and understand wider sector issues."
