Providing law-related training for non-legal clients (i.e., for managers and, to a lesser degree, non-managerial personnel) is an important function of every in-house legal department. This is especially vital in the area of corporate compliance, where training on pertinent laws and regulations can help prevent and detect legal problems and limit or mitigate the organization’s exposure if violations occur. Beyond compliance issues, in-house counsel may also find it useful to train non-legal personnel on how to perform certain quasi-legal functions that might otherwise consume a busy legal department’s scarce resources. For example, with the appropriate training and tools, non-legal managers may be able to lead contract negotiations and drafting, or investigate employee complaints (with attorneys providing advice and oversight as needed). This cross-functionality frees up attorneys from what can be time-consuming tasks and enhances the value of the non-attorney managers’ job functions. This InfoPAK will discuss the practical and logistical challenges of planning and executing these training initiatives.
