The GLS Solution
GLS Legal Team Job Descriptions™ gives you access to standard job role profiles that will allow you to quickly produce customized job roles for each member of your legal team.
As the most important legal dept. asset, it is imperative that each legal team member has a clear and agreed job role that reflects and enables the realization of the legal dept’s overall objectives.
Optimized legal team performance can only be achieved if each team member knows their role and that each role within the team compliments and supports each other in the pursuit of the overall dept. operating mandate.
The clarity of each job role directly impacts resourcing, work assignments, training & development, progression, promotions and performance reviews and as such is a critical legal team performance planning tool.
This solution provides you generic job role descriptions that GLS has developed after interviewing hundreds of in-house lawyers within major “national” corporate entities who occupy various recognized in-house legal team positions including:
- Chief Legal Officer / General Counsel / Head of Legal (overall team leadership)
- Legal Directors (functional/geographic/sector legal owners)
- Senior In-House Lawyer
- Junior In-House Lawyer
- Legal Paralegal
- Privacy Officer
- Legal Secretary
- Legal Operations Officer
- Knowledge Manager
Each job description has been prepared so that the relevant team member can understand:
- Role definition
- Role responsibilities
- Legal & technical requirements
- Non-legal skills
- Value creation contributions
- Overall all team responsibilities
With GLS Legal Team Job Descriptions™ you can help rapidly define clear roles and responsibilities for your team - a precursor to achieving a high performance legal team.
Note: finalisation of job roles within your team will also depend on your approved legal dept. organisational design (eg centeralised, de-centeralised and/or hybrid) as well as the authority that the Board grants to your legal department and which can be delegated to each specific legal team role. See Related Solutions for how GLS can help in these areas.
