Why lawyers think the way they do with Kiri Parr

Webinar - October 19, 2021 at 12:00pm - 1pm

Gain a better understanding of why lawyers think and act the way they do to help better engage with other stakeholders and ultimately strengthen us as consultants. 

In this webinar, we’ll cover different perspectives of the “why” behind typical behaviour such as:

  • Understanding liability from a lawyers perspective – liability pathways and the pros and cons 
  • Understanding common tools that lawyers use
  • Discussing the role that contracts serve to different stakeholders and where our wires are getting crossed between users 
  • Understanding legal language
  • The negotiation process and dispute resolution
