The Institute for Corporate Counsel is the premier Los Angeles conference for in-house and outside counsel and those who advise them. The Institute brings together over 500 professionals annually, including in-house counsel, outside attorneys, corporate officers and directors, accountants, consultants, compliance officers, financial planners, HR professionals, investors, librarians, legal technology specialists, litigation support professionals, public relations professionals, and legal assistants.
The day-long Institute focuses on the intersection of law, business and politics. The Institute provides a venue for our panelists and participants to better understand Los Angeles' evolving business environment, as well as best practices and changes in the law which can impact business operations. The Institute provides current information, legal guidelines, and practical advice which can be immediately put into practice in an in-house legal department or a law firm. The 2016 Institute will provide meaningful opportunities to interact with in-house counsel, including a luncheon, networking refreshment breaks and hosted cocktail reception. CE units for lawyers and accountants will be available.
