About the In-House Community
A mutually supportive community of In-House Counsel helping In-House Legal and Compliance Professionals meet their ethical, legal and business commitments and responsibilities within their organisations. The In-House Community is comprised of 20,000+ individual member in-house lawyers and those with a responsibility for legal and compliance issues in the Asia-mena region, who we engage via:
Our mission is to ‘Empower In-House Counsel’ to more easily fulfill their ethical, legal, compliance and business responsibilities and Improve Legal & Ethical Compliance for the Benefit of All. We do this by providing a variety of platforms for professional discourse, the building of supporting relationships and the sharing of knowledge for the benefit of anyone fulfilling an in-house legal or compliance function.
Over the last 20 years, the Community has been built and maintained through our 17 annual In-House Congress and Symposium events, Asian-mena Counsel magazine and e-updates, including the Weekly Briefing, and online at (www.inhousecommunity.com).
In-House Community Thought Leaders
The In-House Community Thought Leaders are a select group of respected senior in-house practitioners who provide us with guidance on issues related to the function and practice of being an in-house counsel for our events, the magazine and for the In-House Community as a whole.

The In-House Community Corporate Counsel Credo
Created in conjunction with a number of our Thought Leaders, the Corporate Counsel Credo has eventuated as a result of various discussions at our In-House Community gatherins, where counsel suggested that they would find such a document useful in meeting their ethical, legal and business commitments and responsibilities within their organisations.

“Creating a business focusing on the ‘sell side’ (ie external counsel) of the legal service value chain is relatively easy and has been the norm for decades Rallying the ‘buy side’ (namely in-house counsel) to lead value creation is much more challenging. The In-House Community™ is unique in that regard. As a ‘lifer’ in-house counsel, I am excited at the In-House Community’s potential in helping us to address this challenge.”
