Organizations are oftentimes quick to designate a legal counsel as the conscience of the company. But are we? And should we be? Just how separate should legal and compliance be? This session will scrutinize the dynamic of the in-house lawyer who simultaneously serves as the company’s ethics officer. Are the roles of lawyer and ethics officer symbiotic — or potentially conflicting? Our panel will evaluate the pros and cons, the risks and the benefits, of wearing both hats along with such related practical issues as budgetary considerations, lines of report, and relations with HR and internal audit.
