Virtual Conference

Overview (Program Summary)

Please join us for a full-day conference that will address the key issues a new general counsel or small law department lawyer will face in their role. Learn to uncover and tackle challenges within a variety of subject areas so you can be successful within your department and your company. 

The In-House Primer will give in-house counsel an opportunity to attend six CLE sessions and hear from subject matter experts regarding employment issues, IP pitfalls, insurance and risk management, basic mergers & acquisition principles, and antitrust basics. Learn what you need to know and when to call outside assistance.

In addition, at the end of the day we will host a Networking and Q&A session on Zoom.  You will be able to meet the panelists, ask any unanswered questions and network with colleagues.
