The complexity of laws and jurisdictional issues affecting corporate social responsibility (CSR) is increasing. Lawyers must counsel their clients on a range of CSR topics: business and human rights, anti-corruption, ethical sourcing and  lending, privacy, and non-judicial grievance mechanisms. With the prevalence of cross-border class actions and extraterritorial jurisdiction, the importance of properly advising companies on the range of CSR issues can not be sufficiently stressed.

This series, comprised of an in-person workshop in Toronto (recorded) and a webinar (separate registration), addresses the framework for international corporate liability and developments in this field. The series will be relevant to both in-house counsel and private practitioners as well as company directors, executives and CSR professionals.

The 2-hour recording of this event (which took place on Friday, November 28, 2014) presents the key presentations by our speakers.

The LSBC has accredited this recording for 2 hours according to the practice areas of Corporate and Professional Responsibility and Ethics.
