Description

How can we accelerate the development of M&A lawyers, increase their business acumen and best prepare them for the demands of practice? The panel will discuss the core competencies of M&A lawyers, and strategies for developing and delivering learning for them, combining learning in-house, on-the-job and in educational institutions. We will explore core programme elements, timing, duration, learning methodology and trainers, and share examples of programmes that IBA members are currently running.
