The In-House Legal Group NI (IHLGNI) held its AGM in association with A&L Goodbody against a background of strong growth.

IHLGNI celebrated a successful year, expanding its membership to over 200 in-house lawyers in Northern Ireland and organising a number of professional CPD events covering a range of relevant issues and topics for in-house lawyers, as well as social events such as wine tasting.

The new committee elected at the AGM is made up of Lisa Armstrong (Belfast City Council); Sean Grego and Sinead McAroe (both from Citi); Elma McEneaney and Conall McMahon (both from Kainos); Niall McSorely (Baker McKenzie) and Anne MacRandal (Autism NI).

Following the AGM, an information session was held for the 110 delegates, in which senior lawyers from A&L Goodbody discussed recent commercial contracts updates and shared tips.

This was followed by a keynote presentation by James Stebbing, senior legal counsel at the Rugby Football Union, who gave an insight into his career and the challenges he has faced as counsel.

IHLGNI is planning two further CPD events in November and December. More information is available from inhouselegalgroupni@gmail.com.
