Cull the noise
find the signal
InHouse is the conference for legal, ops & IT leaders who want to be better at their jobs, more impactful on their organizations, and who want to share thoughtful solutions to common challenges. Learn from those who are doing transformational work in the trenches—and culling the noise...
Learn From Peers At These World-Class Organizations
Actionable insights from peers who’ve done it.

Today, the roles and responsibilities of in-house legal teams are growing broader and more diverse by the day. And the pressure to show the value of legal, to justify spend and headcount, and to support the business needs of your teams is greater than ever. With so much on your plate and limited resources, how do you focus on the areas that really impact your team and your business?

No challenge is unique, and each is solvable. The people you'll learn from at InHouse22 prove it. You'll leave this event with practical, actionable ideas for doing your job better, having a bigger impact on your organization, and taking control of spend, data, and outside partner relationships.

Show ROI Where It Matters
As organizations grapple with belt-tightening and a weakening economy, it's more important than ever to be able to show and articulate the value of various legal initiatives. Learn from those who are debunking the idea of legal as a "cost center." 
Take Control of Your Budget
Whether deploying techniques to reign in outside counsel and vendor spending, or putting efficiency-boosting technology in place, ops experts getting the most bang for their buck will share what's working—and what's not.
Build for Scale
Learn from those who've developed playbooks, frameworks and guidelines for building highly successful in-house organizations, whether from the first attorney out or at larger teams attempting to take the next leap up the maturity curve.
Agenda Coming soon

The full agenda, topics and speaker roster will be available in August.
