Legal Office 2018 training schedule

22 Mar 2018
Legal Office training

The UNSW Legal Office is now taking enrolments for its 2018 training schedule. After the success of last year’s roll-out, the Legal Office is again offering training on topics of interest to the broader UNSW community, delivered by its enthusiastic and expert in-house legal counsel.

The sessions will provide an overview of everyday issues which can create legal risk to UNSW, drawing on case studies from the counsel’s experience to illustrate the legal issues, and help you explore ways of reducing or managing those risks. You will have a chance to ask questions and share your experience and expertise.

This year’s offering includes new topics based on community feedback and, as always, your input is invited about what other topics would be useful for you and your team.

The sessions are 1-2 hours long, scheduled on various dates until the end of 2018.  You can enrol in the through myUNSW.
