The Life and Career of an In-house Attorney

September 29, 2021 @ 12:15 pm 1:15 pm

This event is co-sponsored with the Corporate and Business Law Society (CABLS)

Working in-house can be significantly different than working at a private law firm. The main difference between the two is that in-house attorneys have only one client: the company that employs them. The type of work in-house attorneys does depend on the company’s size and the nature of the business.

If you are on the fence about what path is right for you or would like to learn about this career path, please join us for an in-house career panel discussion. This is a great opportunity to learn about the life and career of an in-house attorney.
