The course will contribute to successful and effective practice as an in-house counsel and explore similarities and differences between in-house and outside legal practice. Topics covered will include: evaluating in-house opportunities; transitioning to an in-house role; the relationship between in-house counsel and their internal clients; staffing and interacting with the board of directors, in-house counsel's role in adding value to his/her organization; advising and counseling clients; selecting and managing outside counsel; and an ethical challenge pertinent to in-house counsel.
This course will be highly interactive with frequent breakout groups. There will be very little duplicative material with Special Topics in In-House Practice, also offered this semester.
