The Corporate Counsel College is designed to be an interactive and dynamic learning experience that takes advantage of the vast knowledge and experience of panelists, in-house corporate counsel, and outside counsel attendees. While each session will follow a slightly different format, panelists and moderators will share their experiences and what they learned. The moderators will engage the audience and panel members in a spirited and educational discussion about the issues, sometimes posing hypothetical situations to stimulate further discussion.
