BCL Legal Network Events

In-house seminars

The BCL Legal In-house team partner with some of the UK's largest law firms to deliver up to 50 developmental and social events a year.

All events take place in a relaxed and friendly environment, which allows in-house counsel to enjoy an opportunity to network with their private practice counterparts.

  • Held across 8 city locations
  • Over 1500 in-house lawyers attend the seminars annually
  • Attendance is free


We work closely with our in-house contacts and law firm partners to ensure our courses are relevant and interesting, presenting a stimulating mix of legal and business-related topics

Topics vary from compliance to negotiation across different sectors, such as retail and hospitality. The BCL in-house team ensures there's an interest for every in-house lawyer.

We take requests! If there’s a topic of interest you want to know more about, chances are your peers are equally curious, so let us know and we’ll make it happen.
