You Don’t Need to Be a Lawyer to Make the Law
Work for You
21st century businesses and non-profit organizations face an increasingly complex regulatory and legal environment. Employers cannot possibly hire lawyers to sort through every issue and ensure compliance with complex legal requirements. So your company must count on you, as a non-lawyer professional, to understand basic legal concepts, speak the language of the law, and navigate this challenging landscape.
