Vinciworks200Why do companies still struggle to create gender balance at the top? How do well-intentioned people still misunderstand their client base? What are the costs when they get it wrong?

This webinar will demystify how unconscious bias affects solicitors and managers and how it impacts your practice.

After the webinar, you will have a clear understanding of the next steps you can take to train people to go beyond the legal requirements and create the cultural change that your firm needs.

The webinar is free of charge and carries 0.5 CPD points. It is open to HR professionals, compliance departments, solicitors, managers and anyone interested in unconscious bias. It will include:

  • Best practice
  • Case studies
  • Practical advice


Who’s leading the webinar?

Dr. Suzanne Doyle-Morris, founder of the InclusIQ Institute and author of ‘Beyond the Boys’ Club’ and ‘Female Breadwinners’ will lead the session. She draws on 15 years’ experience in the field, advising professional services and law firms on cultivating inclusive cultures.

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
