Legal In House Jobs

What do in-house lawyers do?

In-house legal job roles involve looking after the legal needs of the organisation, whereas private practice lawyers will work for a range of external clients. The work of an in-house lawyer will vary according to the nature of the business and the size of the legal team. Many in-house lawyers will be responsible for providing legal advice, aiding decision making and the general operation of the company you work for.

This could involve reviewing a company’s compliance with ethical and regulatory standards or investigations how legal risk can be managed to help the company increase its efficiency. Working as a legal counsel can certainly provide a rewarding career, and the number of lawyers working in house is growing at a faster rate than that seen in private practice.

What is the average salary for in-house legal jobs?
