The increasingly global scope of the in-house practice came clearly into focus at the recent Association of Corporate Counsel Annual Meeting. The 2,000 in-house counsel attending the conference included representatives from nearly 40 countries. The more than 130 exhibitors included vendors, law firms, and legal service providers from around the world. And, many of the over 100 program sessions were specifically styled as providing “the global perspective.”

In-house counsel are playing an increasingly critical role within private and public companies. He or she is now often responsible for many functions/departments such as risk, compliance, intellectual property management, restructurings, corporate secretarial, etc. General counsel in particular are almost invariably members of the senior executive management team, and are required to forge a very close working relationship with the CEO, COO, CFO, and the board of directors.

In a few days I leave for Los Angeles and the Association of Corporate Counsel Annual Meeting for which I organized a session for those interested in teaching at law school. The response to what was to be a small, informal breakfast conversation with a few ACC members who currently teach at their local law school has been incredible. We had to change rooms as we now have over 200 registrants for this early morning session that does not even offer CPD credit.
