A two-day workshop is open to Queen Mary School of Law postgraduate students only. Attendance will be limited to 24 people so please book early to avoid disappointment.

“This master-class is essential for international lawyers and will provide cross-cultural understanding and practical consultancy skills necessary for those working in the legal field providing advice and support for clients across the globe."

For an international lawyer, cross-cultural competence is critical to professional success because in the coming years the businesses and organisations most likely to experience sustained growth are those that carry out work on an international basis, and who develop a set of strategic skills to master business across many different cultures. According to a recent Accenture study productivity in businesses can be raised by 30 per cent through optimising cross-cultural skills in their staff. Clearly, legal firms need employees who are globally minded and who have the skills necessary to operate successfully on an international level. To develop these now is an investment in the future that can also help during the selection process. For more information please see the flyer.

The programme will be for 15 hours spread over two days.

For further information, please download the flyer.
