Why Should You Attend:

The roles of in-house counsels in the 21st century are as varied as the organizations they serve. One thing that all in-house counsels have in common is that they serve a single client… the organization, be it for-profit or non-profit, publicly traded or privately held, which employs them. The exclusivity of this attorney-client relationship, as well as the unique intimacy and confidentiality that it fosters, gives rise to complex and difficult ethical challenges.
