Dear Inhouse Legal Counsel

We have come across an interesting piece of research and thought there might be those In-House/Corporate Lawyers who may want to take part. We would like to assist by responding and forwarding the survey on to other In-House Lawyers .

Mr Rian Hancock is conducting research towards the completion of an MBA thesis with the University of Pretoria, Gordon Institute of Business Science.

The thesis is entitled "The Make-or-Buy Decision for In-House Legal Departments: A Concurrent Sourcing Model". The research is aimed at how In-House Legal Departments make the decision to either make or buy legal services internally versus externally. The research is aimed at highlighting the economic drivers that influence the decision.

This academic research can provide valuable insights into the functioning of In-House Legal Departments and can assist Corporate Counsel in conducting the legal services of their organisations.

Please complete the survey by following this link. This survey will be open for till 5:00 pm on 2 September 2016.

The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Your assistance and completion of the survey will be much appreciated.
