Continuing Legal Education


In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are postponing the 40th Annual Ray Garrett Jr. Corporate and Securities Law Institute, originally scheduled for April 23-24, 2020.

Mark your calendars to join Northwestern Law September 23-25, 2020 for a newly created and reformatted three-day Institute in Chicago!

Although we are disappointed to postpone our April Institute, we are more than excited to unveil a new three-day, dual event combining two of our nationally recognized Institutes: the Ray Garrett Jr. Corporate and Securities Law Institute and the Corporate Counsel Institute.

The three-day conference combines prominent Garrett topics originally planned for the April Institute with additional panels, speakers, and pertinent in-house counsel programming of the Corporate Counsel Institute. Together, this event will provide the latest in corporate and securities law for firm practitioners, in-house counsel, and audiences looking to gain valuable insights into current legal issues impacting all areas of business.

Check back for additional details including schedule, speakers, and more. We look forward to seeing you in September!

Northwestern Law has been offering continuing legal education of the highest quality for more than 60 years. As the legal market evolves, so does our programming providing attendees access to the subject matter experts who help shape the current legal markets.

Securities Regulation Institute (SRI)

One of the most visible and highly-regarded securities and corporate law conferences in the country, the Securities Regulation Institute, held every January in Coronado, reaches 400 prominent attorneys from both firm and in-house practices. From boardroom updates to issues impacting pre-public companies, the Institute focuses on practical advice for attorneys advising corporate clients on the ever-changing world of securities and business law.  

Ray Garrett Jr. Corporate and Securities Law Institute

The Ray Garrett Jr. Corporate and Securities Law Institute is the preeminent conference of its kind in the Midwest, designed to provide private practitioners and corporate counsel with a timely analysis of current issues and developments confronting corporations. 500 firm and in-house attorneys gather each spring on campus for discussion of critical issues while networking with senior officials from the SEC, Delaware judges, and prominent corporate and securities law practitioners. 

Corporate Counsel Institute (CCI)

Every fall, Northwestern Law hosts the Corporate Counsel Institute, focusing on the specific continuing educational needs of the corporate counsel community. The Institute, which is the only program in the country designed by a committee made up exclusively of general counsel, addresses the latest legal issues affecting business while allowing 300 attendees to discuss shared experiences, identify solutions, and network with peers.
