As the organisation for lawyers in commerce and industry, we are your representative body in respect of the in-house community and we are regularly in touch with the Law Society and other bodies such as the SRA and Legal Services Board to lobby and put forward our members' views.
We offer training courses designed to satisfy and fit the requirements of members' self-assessment. Our courses are competitively priced and members who have opted for a Subscribed Membership will receive a discount of £100 on every course they attend in the membership year.
In 2017 we will be offering four free webinars to Subscribed members, which can be viewed live or via a recorded version at a later date. In addition to the free webinars, we will also be offering a number of webinars as part of our paid training programme and Subscribed members will receive a discount.
We have seven regional groups who, through local committees and the support of the National Office, organise local events such as soft skills events, round table discussions, legal briefings and social events such as dinners and fund raising events. These events provide a great opportunity for members to network and share experiences with other in-house lawyers in their area. Our regions are London, Thames Valley, Central, Yorkshire, Midlands, Tyne Tees and North West.
Over the years and at the request of our members, we have set up a number of special interest groups in the following sectors - Corporate Governance, Sole/Small In-House Legal Teams, North & South Food & Drink, Automotive and Privacy groups.
Membership of the C&I Group is free with members being able to obtain Subscribed Membership which includes a range of benefits. Individual Subscribed Membership costs £75 + VAT and you are then eligible for significant savings on any of our courses (so much so that you will have saved the cost of your membership by attending just one course). Membership runs from January-December.
If you have more than six members in your legal department then our Subscribed Corporate Membership is even better value for money at just £450 + VAT for up to 20 lawyers and £500 + VAT for over 20 lawyers and this runs yearly from when it is taken out.
The C&I Group is controlled by a Board of Directors and has a National office based in Stockport.
