International In-House Counsel Breakfast Forum Series


This breakfast series, established in Spring 2012 and moderated by Fordham Law Adjunct Professor Kent Bernard, invites General Counsel of large multinational organizations to talk informally with students about their in-house practice. Many students attending are LL.M. candidates or visiting Scholars and Researchers (VSR).   The small group setting allows for an excellent interchange between speaker and students.  Speakers are most gracious about networking opportunities.
