This course will enable both in-house and outside counsel to expand their skills in and be more valuable to their clients by covering the why, what, when, where and how of corporate governance and controls and risk management. The governance and risk management environment has changed in the last few years. Emerging trends in governance best practices from Boards to Committees, and in policies, procedures and controls, will be covered, including how to enhance your client’s existing governance and risk frameworks. Risk assessments, risk mapping, risk appetite statements, risk profiling, risk monitoring and other emerging best practices will be discussed. Controls around types of risk (enterprise risk, market risk, credit risk, reputational risk, financial risk, liquidity risk, strategic risk, operational risk, legal and regulatory risk) will be highlighted. Risk modeling and model governance are areas where auditors and regulators are increasingly expecting higher standards, so these areas will be covered as well. Structuring and enhancing the three lines of defense and other best practices will be covered as well as ethics related to governance and risk. You will learn about these changes from experts in the field.

Who Should Attend: Lawyers who practice for any industry and work in securities, M&A, litigation and regulatory areas need to increase their knowledge of the terminology and methodology for governance and risk management to effectively advise clients. Risk management professionals and board members will also increase their governance and risk expertise.
