All events

Through WIN, we run a program of training sessions, seminars, networking events and webinars delivered by external providers and our own lawyers and consultants. We aim to provide you with the tools, personal development and knowledge you need to demonstrably add value to your business. All courses are accredited by the Law Society and qualify for continuing professional hours (CPD).

To ensure you receive invitations to our popular and often over-subscribed WIN training and panel events, please register for the program.

We remain committed to WIN being shaped by in-house lawyers, for in-house lawyers. Please get in touch and share your suggestions for future WIN events.

07Jun The Voice of the GC: The In-house Legal Department of the Future - WIN Keynote Panel Paris This June, more than 1500 DLA Piper partners from 63 countries will come together to discuss the future of the legal industry at the Palais des Congres in Paris for our Global Partners Conference. As part of the conference, we are hosting a special keynote panel event, led by prominent Global General Counsel. We are pleased to invite you to attend this discussion and networking event, as an active and valued member of our Future Legal Leaders community, together with a number of General Counsel and Heads of Legal departments from the international WIN network. Both the role and sophistication of in-house teams have developed exponentially over the last ten years, with the GC role becoming increasingly strategic and in-house teams looking to redefine the role they play in their organizations. This event will explore this evolution through the eyes of an esteemed panel of General Counsel at leading global organizations to discuss fresh thinking and innovative approaches to talent, technology, process and their associated impact on law firms. Topics to be explored include: * The changing role of the general counsel and in house-lawyer alongside the talent management strategies needed to effectively utilize this opportunity * How legal departments are considering using process effectively and the rise of legal operations * The future of external law firms, as seen by General Counsel. Official welcome by Global Co-CEO of DLA Piper, Simon Levine. Attendees will also receive a sneak peek into research currently being undertaken for an upcoming white paper being jointly developed by DLA Piper and Legal 500, and invite you to add your views to the upcoming report through interactive voting during the panel. Our keynote panel will share their own personal stories and perspectives on themes emerging from the white paper research, and offer candid views on the in-house legal team of the future. We hope you can join us for what will prove to be a fascinating debate, full of thought, insight and ideas. This session is open to senior in-house lawyers, Heads of Legal and General Counsel.
19Sep Presentation lessons from politics Manchester Join us for our WINClassics series, a range of workshops exploring fundamental soft skills topics regularly requested each year by our WIN community. This series is different to our Future Legal Leaders programme (supporting rising stars) and is open to in-house lawyers at all levels. Politicians have to speak regularly, at short notice, on a range of topics, in a variety of formats. There are many things we can learn from their approach, including their mistakes. With presentation skills one of our most requested topics, we are pleased to offer you a variation on previous presentation courses, delivered by an expert trainer who served for almost a decade as a Member of the Scottish Parliament. "The national Budget has just been published – it is around 500 pages. You are doing a live interview in 45 minutes, and then go straight to the Chamber for a full debate with the Finance Minister. Oh, and can you do Newsnight at 11 PM...and then Good Morning Scotland at 6.30 AM? Good luck!" This dynamic seminar will help you to assemble great material swiftly, fine-tune it carefully and structure it effectively. You will also learn how to get ready to perform and make the maximum possible impact. This WIN seminar is packed full of strategies, tips and shortcuts with immediate practical application. It has been adapted and shaped to provide a particular focus for in-house lawyers. Workshop outline: * The most effective and efficient way to craft your message and build your structure * 5 vital lessons every speaker can learn from politics and how to apply these lessons to the commercial world * Being fully ready to speak for the first time or even the tenth time that day * How to add extra sparkle to your presentation * How to transfer the techniques to meetings and informal situations
