Both personally and professionally, Elizabeth Carroll is keeping herself very busy. Wearing multiple hats, she feels, makes her better equipped to lead her legal department and be innovative.
On this episode of The Corporate Counsel Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by IP Australia chief legal officer Ms Carroll – who recently won the General Counsel of the Year category at the 2020 Women in Law Awards – to discuss why she feels it is so important for in-house lawyers to get involved in extracurricular work and why they are well placed to navigate such business and organisational commitment.
The pair also talk about the need for greater representation in extracurricular work from the in-house cohort, and why those who roll up their sleeves and get involved might be better corporate counsel in the looming new normal, as they have greater exposure to new and exciting ways to be creative and innovative when tackling client matters.
