Professional Responsibility: Corporate Counsel

The role of in-house corporate counsel has changed radically over the last twenty years. Their numbers have increased substantially, and they often negotiate transactions and supervise litigation in ways that diminish the power and authority traditionally wielded by outside counsel. This course explores the ethical implications of these changes and the new role of corporate counsel. The course materials include cases, law review articles, newspaper accounts of significant events and problems. From time-to-time distinguished practitioners will be invited to address the class.
