This half-day live session will look at what it means to be an effective local government lawyer, whatever legal specialism you may be in. We will explore what being an in-house lawyer means, who is your client and what differences flow from working for a politically led public body. We will discuss key relationships with the Monitoring Officer, elected members, client departments and working as part of multi-disciplinary teams. We will conclude with a discussion on practical approaches, skills and behaviours to be an effective lawyer in local government.

This session will be suitable for anyone working in a local authority as a practising lawyer, whatever your specialist area, whether this is child protection, planning, commercial or any other field. It will be particularly useful for colleagues who are new to local government.

The session will be run by Bethan Evans, an experienced local government lawyer, Monitoring Officer and trainer.
