Speaking Engagement

Northwestern's Corporate Counsel Institute

The Corporate Counsel Institute, presented by Northwestern University, was the first program of its kind to offer general counsel an opportunity to discuss the unique challenges faced by in-house counsel. The Institute was founded more than 44 years ago by David S. Ruder, Northwestern Law professor and former Chair of the Securities and Exchange Commission. It is a forum for discussion of current issues of substantive law and practical tools for the day to day practice of law within a corporation.
