The path to GC and beyond

Episode 3 - the power of community with Emily Jackson (FIFA) and David Lancelot (LawVu, ex eBay)

In the third episode of our webinar series 'The path to GC and beyond', our host David Lancelot, CLO and EVP Advocacy at LawVu (ex VP and HoL at eBay - Global Classifieds), is joined by guest speaker Emily Jackson, Director of Legal (US) FIFA World Cup 2026™, with the theme of navigating the complexities of leading in today’s in-house legal landscape, and the powerful role community plays in this.

In this short and punchy conversation you’ll hear about:

  • Emily’s conventional, and not so conventional, pathway to becoming DoL and her key learnings along the way
  • The complexities of leadership and how you can navigate them with your community
  • What she would do differently in her career and what’s beyond her leadership role - what comes next?!
