Compliance is the outcome

Join top legal professionals with discussion on the latest developments – at the Global Life Sciences Law Conference. The conference, which will take place virtually over two days in March.

Session on Day 1: Compliance is the outcome of an effective ethical culture

How to achieve balance so that compliance does not undermine ethical behaviour:

  • What are the implications of the interaction between ethics and compliance?
  • How can values and ethics create the foundation for effective compliance?
  • Beyond policies and processes: how to assess and influence culture?
  • The legal leadership challenge – leaders face conflicting needs: building a just, open culture and protecting the company against litigation risks. Can these be reconciled?

I hope to see you there.
