National Association of Women Lawyers Tenth Annual General Counsel Institute Conference

JAMS is a sponsor of the
National Association of Women Lawyers (NAWL)
Tenth Annual General Counsel Institute (GCI10) Conference
November 6-7, 2014

Today’s world-class organizations require in-house counsel not only to be expert lawyers, but also strategic and motivational leaders who enable, engage and empower themselves, their law departments, and their organizations to achieve complex commercial objectives. To address the complexity of dynamic organizations, in-house legal leaders must build strong and engaged teams; gain commitment and cooperation from their business partners; and understand the commercial impact and risks of privacy obligations with transparency, and compliance requirements, with strategic business alliances. Just as organizations are abandoning old ways of thinking, the expertise and skills of successful leaders are shifting in unprecedented ways to drive growth in the 21st century.

Explore the strategies, skills and substantive knowledge necessary for in-house counsel to successfully lead their organizations and legal departments. Discover how to orchestrate rather than dictate to enable others to achieve their best; learn to influence rather than control – to empower others to start conversations and build consensus; and develop a broader repertoire of technical skills, substantive legal expertise and emotional intelligence – to create an engaged and positive work environment.
