    GCI 10 Highlights

    SOARING TO NEW HEIGHTS:
    Mastering the Expanding Role of General Counsel as Legal Expert, Business Strategist, and Ethical Leader

    The last several years have brought significant changes to the General Counsel position and for many, a rise of greater prominence within their companies. Large-scale forces are transforming the economics of corporations as they face challenges related to accelerating competition, cost controls, technology development, reporting transparency, and Wall Street’s focus on short-term profit maximization.

    As a result, the General Counsel increasingly has a broader scope beyond being strictly a legal advisor to also being a C-suite executive, senior counselor to the Board, the CEO, and the CFO, and the ultimate guardian of the company’s integrity. The General Counsel and her in-house lawyers are expected to understand the full spectrum of their company’s business and provide expert legal advice, business strategy input, and ethical guidance.

    At GCI 11, you will explore ways to create and promote your legal department as a key business partner, develop and employ critical business relationships, and strategically advance your expertise and skills to bolster your prominence within the company. Through powerful personal stories, substantive legal workshops, and GCI’s unique open exchange of ideas, you will soar to new heights as you develop practical solutions to stay relevant in today’s evolving corporate legal and business environments.


    WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

    Senior corporate counsel of public, private, large and small companies, non-profits, government, and educational institutional. Registration is limited to in-house counsel. Scholarships are available for in-house attorneys who wish to attend, but may not be able to do so due to cost considerations.
