As in-house counsel, your legal knowledge and expertise is only one component of being a highly-successful legal partner. Your legal and business practical skills are equally paramount to your overall success at your company.

This CLE concentrates on providing you with the skills necessary to excel at being not only a good lawyer, but a great business partner as well.

The Corporate Counsel Section of the NCBA welcomes section members, as well as the many non-member in-house counsels across our state, to attend this all-day CLE event.

Join us as we “take care of business” and learn from leading general counsels and other legal and business experts “how good lawyers become great business partners.”

This six-hour CLE event, which includes one hour of substance abuse/mental health credit, offers an opportunity to network with fellow in-house counsel over lunch and during an extended networking break.

Don’t miss out as we learn “how good lawyers become great business partners” by:

  • Contributing to a successful legal department and exuding executive presence as in-house counsel
  • Taking care of your company’s brand and formulating sound legal arguments in a crisis
  • Creating efficiencies in managing contracts and handling contract negotiations
  • Minimizing stress for yourself and your business partners while running productive meetings
  • Managing your workflow by utilizing the power of technology
