This course is intended to examine a variety of practice and legal issues from the perspective of the in-house attorney. Practice issues would include the lawyer?s role in the corporation; organization and management of the legal department; interviews and counseling of clients who are fellow employees; formal compliance and legal audit procedures; and management of litigation and outside counsel. These issues will be explored in the context of key legal issues like SEC and Sarbanes-Oxley issues; labor and employment matters; litigation large and small and individual and numerous; transactions; and various regulatory matters. The course?s relevance is not limited to those contemplating an in-house career, since students headed to law firm practice would gain insight into the concerns of the people who will often be their principal client interface.
