ACC is pleased to announce the 2024 Executive Leadership Institute: A Master Class on the Next Generation of General Counsel, July 30 - August 2, 2024. Limited to no more than 30 participants,* the ELI is a truly unique and customized experience. Leading global general counsel have worked together with the ACC to craft the master class they wish they had attended before becoming GCs. No other program available is more practical, relevant or focused on lawyers as leaders.

*Eligibility: Participants must report directly to the highest-ranking legal officer of an organization, and hold a title such as deputy general counsel, associate general counsel, managing attorney or general counsel for a division, subsidiary, or region of the organization or serving in the general counsel role for 12 months or less with no prior GC experience. 

July 30 - August 2, 2024 | Chicago, Illinois (US)

Over the past thirty years, the role of general counsel in corporations has evolved and expanded dramatically. Today's GC is called upon to lead the company in critical business situations and answer to the government and media in the midst of crises. The GC is often designated as a member of the senior management team while giving independent advice to the board of directors. A successful modern-day GC will possess a higher level of knowledge, soft skills, understanding of complex corporate dynamics and new communications competencies well beyond expertise in black letter law. 

Train alongside a world-class faculty of top GCs and corporate leaders.

The program is hosted at The Gwen, a Luxury Collection hotel in the historic McGraw-Hill building.

Tuition fees are due on acceptance.

For the deputy general counsel and those attorneys who want to make that leap to the general counsel position, the ACC Executive Leadership Institute is unparalleled to anything out there. The programming was exceptional; the speakers were great, and you really get a good feel of what a GC goes through every day.
