This Leading Practices Profile, an update to ACC’s 2009 The Role of the General Counsel in Canada LPP, describes practices implemented by the law departments of six organizations regarding law department structure, the professional development of their in-house lawyers, the selection and management of external service providers and the use of technology. Those practices were designed and intended to enable those departments to provide higher-value legal service to their respective organizations. Four of those organizations are private enterprises; one is an international, not-for-profit corporation and one is a statutory agency of a provincial government.
