This is a video summary with the conclusions of the event. In Spanish only.


– Businesses must include lawyers on boards to ensure compliance.

– Board members’ roles should be professionalised, which should involve training.

– There should be a clear distinction drawn between the role of the lawyer acting as a board member and the role of lawyers acting as external advisors to the board.
