Please join us for the first ISBA Corporate Counsel Institute (ICCI) sponsored by ISBA Corporate Counsel Section. The ICCI seeks to provide a meaningful opportunity for new and experienced attorneys to interact with in-house counsel, corporate counsel and outside practitioners all while attending excellent continuing legal education programs.
We have brought together distinguished practitioners to address a wide array of issues important to in-house and corporate counsel. In six content packed plenary sessions, the ICCI presenters will cover topics important to in-house counsel, including contract review and working with outside counsel; delivering in-house legal services; building an effective code of conduct, protecting trade secrets and preservation obligations; and ethical considerations for in-house counsel. You don’t want to miss this opportunity.
