Do you have an interest in being an in-house lawyer? The knowledge and skills required to work as a corporate counsel are different than practicing at a law firm or in other opportunities. In this course, we’ll explore how to be an effective in-house counsel and provide practical advice to the company. Topics covered will include: the role of an in-house legal department in a company, corporate governance, managing outside counsel, partnering with other departments, advising on various areas of law, risk management, ethics, and in-house career paths. This course is relevant to students, whether or not they are considering in-house practice--lawyers in private practice often work with in-house counsel, and can be more effective if they have a good understanding of the challenges facing their in-house clients.
