Law Centres Governance Training - Manchester

Good Governance Training:

An active, involved and skilled trustee board is essential for the success of any Law Centre. This course will look at key legal duties and responsibilities of trustees and how these translate in practice to ensure excellent governance. 

At the end of this course, participants will: 

  • Understand the legal roles and responsibilities of the trustee board
  • Have an overview of best practice approaches to governance with reference to the Law Centre Network Governance Manual and the Charity Governance Code. 
  • Have tools to engage trustees to go beyond the basic requirement of their role, bringing their full range of skills and values in order to demonstrate outstanding leadership. 
  • Assess the performance of the Board as a whole, and individual Trustees, through a review process. 

This half day course will be followed by a series of webinars for the whole board to attend together, focusing on the separate sections of the LCN Governance Manual. 

Target Audience: 

This course will be of benefit to Chairs and Turstees as well as Law Centre Staff who work with the Board (e.g. the Director, Manager or Chief Executive). It's ideal for those who want to find out how they can ensure they deliver good governance and get the best out of their Trustee Boards. 

Please note, only Law Centre staff and trustees should attend this training.

Date and Location: 

Please note that this training will take place in London and Manchester. You are welcome to sign up to whichever suits you best. See our organiser page for details of other training sessions. 

Should you wish to arrange a separate training, either solely for your own board or together with neighbouring Law Centres, please contact Klara at klara@lawcentres.org.uk and she will try to accommodate your request.
