Called the 2020 In-house Counsel Worldwide (ICW) Summit, the event provides in-house lawyers from all around the world the opportunity to discuss issues in legal, practice management, and soft skills, ILANZ said.

The ICW Summit will run in conjunction with the annual conference of the organisation, which has a theme of “navigating uncertainty,” it said.

The conference and the summit will be held from 20 to 22 May at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa in Wellington.
