Courageous Counsel: Conversations with Women General Counsel in the Fortune 500
Monday, June 25, 2012 6:00 pm-8:00 pm

Event has expired. Registration for this event is no longer available.

Networking Reception 6:00 - 7:00 PM; Panel Discussion 7:00 - 8:00 PM


Reviewers have heralded Courageous Counsel as a valuable guide, not just for women and not just for General Counsels, but rather as a guide for all lawyers pursuing an in-house career, or contemplating one. The authors, along with General Counsels from leading companies, will be on hand to discuss the road that led to their leadership positions, including methods for cultivating sponsorships while navigating corporate politics, and the conversation will include lessons learned.

The authors will be available to sign your copy of the book at a networking reception before the panel discussion. The first 150 attendees will receive a complimentary copy of Courageous Counsel by Michele Coleman Mayes and Kara Sophia Baysinger.
