Legal training and business skills
Whatever stage you’ve reached in your business or career, gaining additional legal and business skills can give you a head start over your competitors.
Bonaccord designs in-house training programmes in legal and business skills for commercial clients, professional bodies and academic organisations – undergraduates, postgraduates and staff. Our courses are unashamedly practical and business-orientated but are based on a solid academic structure. This is particularly valuable for students looking to a career in industry. We can teach at a practical or academic level. All our tutors are graduates usually with an advanced degree and have held senior positions in business. You can meet some of them here.
Bringing business to life
Our tutors are passionate about teaching the reality of how things work in the business world, rather than how they are portrayed in the pages of a textbook. Courses can run from an hour over lunch to a full day or an academic term.
Comprehensive range of subjects
Our training is tailor-made for each client but topics might include:
Communication skills such as:
- Negotiation skills
- Purposeful commercial presentations
- Running an effective meeting
- Crisis management
- Mediation of disputes
- Difficult conversations
Project skills such as:
- Tools for business analysis
- Project management
- Intellectual property
- Finance for non financial managers
- Product licensing

- Managing the product life cycle
We offer detailed management workshops on specific topics from R&D models to market access and outsourcing, to regulation and pricing. Mentoring small groups
We can also mentor individuals or small groups in legal and management skills. This may suit both new managers and senior managers facing new challenges after a company merger.
