A rapidly changing regulatory environment, the shift in the economy, and new business opportunities have mandated the evolution of the role of in-house legal, risk, and compliance functions.

It will provide insight and examples into how legal departments are evolving to provide their organizations greater value and individual observations on the legal and business climate.
