IACCM Council Representatives
Network Leads

Legal Network

The purpose of this Network is to provide its members with insights to new trends and emerging practices in the fields of contract, commercial and relationship management. While these will be in the context of the Legal sector, they will draw from knowledge and ideas that are current and relevant in other sectors.  A key goal is to improve the performance of contracts and relationships in the sector.

The objectives will be met by sharing ideas, discussing challenges, exploring new directions and, where appropriate, initiating research or inviting experts to present on key topics in the sector related to contract, commercial and relationship management.

Meetings will be virtual (by phone or webinar) unless in specific cases there is an agreed wish to have physical meetings or workshops to develop specific initiatives.

Group Mission/Vision:

Provide its members with insights to new trends and emerging practices in the fields of contracting, commercial and relationship management in the sector.

Network Updates

Working from home - will we ever go back?

No one wants to go back! Well, that is a slight exaggeration. A recent IACCM poll reveals that 1% of respondents hope for a future where they work exclusively from an office and 12% would prefer 'mainly office'. But that compares with 63% who want to work mainly or entirely from home and 24% who would like a 50/50 balance.



In this edition we feature: • Suspension of termination rights on insolvency • Cabinet Office Guidance on responsible contractual behaviour • Don't delay if relying upon an indemnity • Failures by procuring body render public sector contract void.


TASK / Ask the Expert: Making Legal Content Remotely: Technology and Storytelling During the Pandemic

This webinar will help contract managers make great multimedia content right from their desks and home offices. We live in an age where content is critical - and contract managers and lawyers have to explain and deal with complex issues all the time! But if you haven't worked in multimedia, where do you start? Fortunately, BrieflyStudios is an expert in creating legal content - and will help in this webinar. At BrieflyStudios, we think legal issues and financial concepts should be accessible to everyone. We merge the skills of lawyers and creative professionals to help lawyers, advocates, and experts like to share their knowledge more broadly and increase their impact. Explaining contract terms, and other legal concepts are challenging in the best of times. This nuts-and-bolts webinar will give you tools to vastly expand your ability to communicate complex concepts during the COVID-19 crisis. We will cover: animation, screencasts, live streams, archival video and audio material, podcasts - and more; practical tips on planning, strategy, and executing projects; and advice on where to find inexpensive equipment, software, and training.
