Back to the Future: In-house Practice in a Post-pandemic World (2022 Corporate Counsel Section Program)

This item is expired.

Great Scott, Marty! Is it 2022 already? As in-house lawyers, we're accustomed to managing iterative change driven by our client's strategic plans and innovation goals, but the future of change is disruption, and the in-house practice of law was already in the process of transformation before the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, the future is here, and corporate attorneys have to be prepared to meet their clients' needs in a brave new world.

Doc Brown said, "Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads." We're here to tell you what well-equipped attorneys of the future will need.

This CLE program prepares in-house counsel for adaptability and discusses the need for lawyers to remain resilient in order to provide timely and effective counsel to their clients. Businesses are adjusting to meet the "real-time satisfaction demand" of today's customers, and the in-house lawyer of the future can't just keep up with — but must anticipate legal needs to support — this changing landscape.

Change has happened, and continues to happen, with no finish line in sight; make sure you're prepared to keep up pace. Hear from general counsels and subject-matter experts on the newest trends and thinking inside the legal department. Also, learn about innovative technologies generating buzz among our business teams, and discover best practices for helping ourselves and our colleagues manage it all.
