What do participants say?

“This was a great course with many valuable takeaways. It also tested and proved my ability to work as a team member with people I had never met before. Great opportunity.”

Crystal Gothard
Corporate Counsel

“Certification helps my career in two ways: by equipping me with the unique nontechnical skills and competencies that are critical to in-house work; and connecting me with fellow in-house lawyers from around the world, who I can now call on for advice whenever I need an informed and independent view.”

James Wambugu
Head of Legal
Eastern and Southern African Trade and Development Bank

“The designation will help advance my career by providing additional tools for becoming a more effective business partner to my stakeholders, as well as helping me to better demonstrate my value to my legal team and the company as a whole. I have already put in practice many concepts that I gained across the program’s core competencies.”

David Farrugia
Corporate Counsel, EMEAI & ANZ and Global Lead International Trade Counsel

“It is rare to encounter a program that helps in-house lawyers explore the host of non-legal aspects of their jobs — all from the angle of fellow in-house lawyers. ACC’s program bridges exactly that particular gap.”

Salah S. Mostafa (faculty)
Head of Legal of the MENA Cluster

“The practical course content and shared experience of my peers and colleagues has given me additional and valuable insights and tips that I can translate into my every day working life as in-house counsel.”
