Non-disclosure agreements (‘NDAs’) are often drafted by lawyers to prevent the disclosure of commercially sensitive information.

Yet in 2024, despite SRA warnings, they are still being put to a more sinister use and may be used to stifle legitimate concerns and complaints about abusive conduct, oppressive working practices or whistle-blowing.

This webinar will explore the extent to which the use of NDAs for these more threatening and overbearing purposes is permissible, and what impact might it have on the workings of the profession.

What You Will Learn

This webinar will cover the following:

  • What is an NDA?
  • When is its use permissible?
  • When is it not acceptable?
  • What should lawyers do in circumstances where an NDA is requested?
  • What is the SRA’s published stance on the topic?

This pre-recorded webinar will be streamed at 12:30pm on Thursday 2nd May 2024 and will remain available to view by delegates who have registered by then for 90 days.
