Global General Counsel Academy

The Global General Counsel Academy runs courses that combine to make an Award and Certificate in General Counsel Legal Management. All modules are built on more than 500 documents included in the Know-How Library of our CLO Network  and they aim to provide business knowledge and leadership skills specific to legal departments.

What is the Global General Counsel Academy?

The Global General Counsel Academy is 

  • Informed by experienced senior GCs
  • Captures best working practices of leading counsel
  • Crystallizes the skills knowledge and management expertise needed for GCs
  • Delivers key skills training through the Academy training programme 
Winmark’s CLO Network and wider interaction with GCs from different sectors, identified crucial GC skills which fall into four categories: 

  1. GC Leadership

The GGCA delivers 32 modules of training each year relating to each of the 4 skill areas.
