The Westchester-Southern Connecticut Chapter has more than 700 members from both large and small law departments.
The chapter serves members representing companies in Westchester County, New York, and Fairfield and New Haven Counties in Connecticut. We focus heavily on helping our members network and stay current on cutting edge issues, as well as offering the nuts and bolts of practice areas to attorneys new to other areas of the law.
Our committees work closely with the Executive Director and sponsors to present CLE programs for in-house counsel, and roundtable discussions, which are limited to members in specific areas of practice. Many CLE programs are recorded and available for purchase.
Career and Job Assistance
The Chapter's Transition Group holds monthly programs, at no charge, which help address specific aspects of the job search. A confidential email list is also maintained where members can announce jobs or ask members for help with introductions, company information, etc. Members are encouraged to use the chapter as an introduction and are also encouraged to use the ACC Jobline.
Pro Bono Programs
The Pro Bono Partnership, founded by chapter members and headquartered in White Plains, NY, offer a broad range of opportunities for in-house counsel who are interested in pro bono work.
