Certification Program

The Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) Australia is delighted to announce the ACC In-house Certification Program will be offered in the APAC time zone in August 2023. The ACC in-house certification program draws on the collective knowledge and experience of ACC’s global membership. It covers the core competencies applied by in-house counsel in Australia and abroad. 

The virtual program will be delivered across eight (8) three-hour blocks across a 2-week period. This program design enables program participants to combine the course with home and work commitments while also maximising the opportunity for participants to collaborate and engage with their fellow program participants.  

The course includes a breakdown of the following:   

  • Translating legal knowledge into business solutions that meet client expectations. 
  • Building emotional intelligence and people management skills to navigate their organisation’s unique culture. 
  • Deploy value-based policies and effective employee training to help protect their organisation from legal liability. 
  • Implementing tech-forward processes that can take their legal operations to a new efficiency level. 
  • Contributing to financial decision-making and strategic planning, both on the law department level and across the organisation. 
  • Articulating, as well as demonstrating, the value of the law department.
