ACC-Northeast is the organization of choice for in-house counsel in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. We offer regular educational programs sponsored by local law firms which cover topics of interest to in-house counsel, using the expertise of the sponsoring firms and that of member panelists . Our members have many opportunities to network with each other, and we host two half day conferences per year that cover one topic in depth, such as "Intellectual Property Master Class" and "Closing the Deal - Balancing Risk with Opportunity in Today's Contracts". The chapter gives back to the community with strong advocacy, pro bono, women's and diversity initiatives, and sponsor an annual ethics award for law students from twelve regional law schools. ACC-Northeast serves the entire states of Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. JOIN ACC-Northeast! To join or renew, click here:
