What we can do for you...

Global Leaders in Law is a forum, which has been established by a group of respected International GCs and former GCs, united in the belief that as a group we can effect significant change in the perception of General Counsel as Global Leaders.

The ability of lawyers, particularly GCs, to deliver long term business value through strategy, value contribution and talent motivation, will depend on how we embrace the leadership challenge. We believe that meeting this challenge requires a catalyst for change and GLL now fills that niche with its global reach and leadership focus.

As a member of the group, you will have access to a number of key thought leadership events, tailored training solutions for GCs, peer networks, advice and assistance from fellow GCs and access to the infobank. Membership is by invitation only.  To retain its exclusivity, strict criteria are applied before members are accepted.
