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.
