Learning and development

Open, customised and online learning and development programmes for clients


Learning and development

Our training programme covers technical legal and business/professional skills topics which, where appropriate, are certified for the purposes of the continuing professional development programme. We regularly update the curriculum to help clients keep abreast of the most important issues affecting their business and industry.

Many of our training sessions are by webinar or conference call, meaning that courses are available globally.

London client training programme

The Spring edition of our training programme is now available to clients. You will find full details of the programme and details on how to register on our NRF Institute - our premium online knowledge site. You can filter our events by topic, event type, sector or area of practice.

Highlights include:

Regulatory Compliance Consulting | webinar series
Our monthly Regulatory Compliance Consulting webinars will provide practical considerations and insight into the challenges facing compliance and risk functions. Join us in January when we look at the Senior Managers and Certification Regime (which comes into force in December 2019) and its impact on asset managers looking to effectively embed a new set of risk and compliance requirements.

Banking and finance | webinar series
Our regular webinar series focusses on the key issues facing banks and financial institutions in 2019. In January, we take a closer look at developments in the regulation of benchmarks, adoption of fallback provisions by trade bodies in various markets (including the LMA, ISDA and ICMA) and transition to alternative benchmarks in anticipation of the retirement of LIBOR at the end of 2021.

We are also repeating our popular Banking and Banking Security and Insolvency Academies, which aim to provide foundation knowledge of legal principles and hot topics.

Financial services | 40 minute briefings
Our regular monthly series continues, focussing on the hot topics impacting the financial services sector. In January we consider Brexit, in particular the temporary permissions regime.

Please join us for a comprehensive and innovative programme of oil, gas and LNG focused legal training to help you continue to adapt and develop in an ever changing global energy market. These sessions run over the course of a morning and provide opportunities for peer networking. Our Spring programme includes the financing aspects of energy and infrastructure projects, renewables and the impact of Brexit for the power sector.

Join us in March for our in-house forum – a round-up of the key issues facing in-house legal and company secretarial teams. This session offers a great opportunity to update yourself on a number of topics and to network with peers.
