LAW6830: Corporate Counsel

2 Credits

Participants will learn the unique challenges of working in-house as corporate counsel with public, private, or nonprofit organizations, developing perspectives and skills to think like and be effective business lawyers and leaders. Students will work individually and in teams to address simulations of problems regularly encountered by corporate counsel, including in areas of risk, compliance and ethics management, governance and the board of directors, leading in crisis, business strategy and planning, international transactions, investigations, litigation management, employment, and intellectual property. Participants may conduct research, draft agreements and memoranda, conduct interviews, negotiate, and develop papers based on practical exercises that are the backbone of the course. Students will explore the three fundamental roles of corporate counsel—acute technician, wise counselor, and lawyer as leader. This course involves questions beyond "what is legal" and focuses on "what is right," using specific illustrations drawn from the contemporary business world.
