Commercial law webinar programme

Ward Hadaway's commercial law webinar programme returns.

It is a varied programme aimed at both in-house lawyers and senior managers in private and public sector organisations. The following topics will all be covered in one hour sessions, held between September and November:

  • What will change as a result of the Subsidy Control Bill?
  • Data protection and marketing – what are the rules now?
  • Software and AI based innovations – what can and can’t be patented, and how you can use other IP to protect them
  • Workforce issues for in-house counsel – an update for non-employment law specialists on IR35 implementation, Settled Status and the implications of agile working

The first of these, What will change as a result of the Subsidy Control Bill?, took place on 17th September. Click here to view the recording.

The second in the series, Data protection and marketing – treading the fine line, will take place on 28th September at 12pm. Click here to book.

Using some recent cases involving Sports Direct, Papa Johns and American Express, Phil Tompkins will take a look at marketing under the current data protection regime, covering a whole range of topics including use of the PECR soft opt-in, and when a service message crosses the boundary and becomes a marketing message.
