Corporate social responsibility compliance – the expanding role of the in-house legal department

Ropes & Gray LLP


Corporate social responsibility (CSR) has gone from ‘nice to have’ to a compliance ‘must have’ in the last several years. 2018 is likely to be deemed the year that CSR compliance became a core responsibility of in-house legal departments and there is no sign of this shift letting up anytime soon. In this webinar, Ropes & Gray partner Michael Littenberg will dive into recent and emerging developments and trends that in-house teams should be looking out for, as well as provide suggestions for legal departments that are building out their CSR compliance function. 

Topics will include:

  • Regulatory requirements and other drivers
  • Emerging risk areas
  • Practical guidance for in-house legal professionals
