About the General Counsel Business Symposium
The GC Business Symposium has been designed to address the issues faced by in-house counsel as they balance the multiple roles they must fill in today's increasingly competitive business environment.The Symposium will explore and discuss the intersection between law and business by providing Chief Legal Officers and their senior team members with strategic insights into critical business issues and the points of view held by other C-Level executives on the roles of and value added by the in-house legal team.

Approved for 1 Colorado CLE Credit

Unlike traditional CLE programs that are oriented to help in-house counsel with important technical legal developments, the Symposium will help GCs improve their business acumen, enhance their executive leadership skills and improve their ability to be an influential "voice at the table" and exert influence at the C-level, beyond the domain of their legal expertise.
