In-House Counsel: Modern Corps

Large in-house legal departments have only recently become a significant part of the legal landscape. The rise of in-house legal departments fundamentally changed the manner in which traditional law firms serve their clients. Yet few law firm attorneys have a deep understanding of the daily challenges and responsibilities of in-house attorneys. The course will provide students with insights into the role and responsibilities of in-house departments in public and private companies. Topics covered will include approaches utilized by in-house counsel to manage law firms; management of the corporate law department by General Counsel; the relationship between in-house counsel, senior executives and the board of directors; the role of in-house counsel in internal investigations and regulatory compliance; and management of litigation.
