Recorded Seminar 1.5 CPD Hrs
Your desk or on your portable device


Chances are, you’ve heard of flexible working. It’s also likely that you are working flexibly, perhaps without even realising it. 

This On Demand seminar provides candid insights, both personal and professional, about what flexible working is, the numerous reasons why it’s being adopted, the challenges it presents, and how it can (and can’t) be achieved in the legal arena. 

Learning outcomes

  • Attain a better understanding of the definition of flexible working.
  • Boost your awareness of the raft of reasons in support of flexible working 
  • Increase your knowledge of what flexible working looks and feels like in practice, including role, hours, place, resources - and even attire.
  • Gain insights into the mindset, process and parameters for implementing flexible working that works for your situation.
  • Garner information about the (sometimes unspoken) challenges inherent with flexible working, for employers, employees and clients.
  • Benefit from the learnings of others who have ‘been there, done that’ and come out the other side, and not only survived but thrived.

Who should view?

This seminar will be of benefit to all legal professionals. It will have particular relevance for principals, partners, directors, barristers, practice managers and L&D managers in small to medium practices/chambers.
