After the success of the GC Forum at last year's Mining Indaba, we're going virtual for 2021!  The Extractives General Counsel Forum Virtual will provide networking, educational and thought leadership opportunities to legal leaders working in the mining, oil and gas, as well as energy and renewables sectors.

Representing an inflexion point whereby those providing legal services within their organisations can become key influencers, controllers and stakeholders despite the seismic changes in society. You can expect topical conference sessions adding value on both a sector-specific and cross-sector basis to ensure maximum ROI while joining our community from the comfort of your own home.
Please note that this event is reserved solely for in-house legal professionals in the extractives industries. This includes general counsel and in-house lawyers, compliance and risk professionals, company secretaries and legal operations managers.
