Join us for this inaugural edition of “Alumni Perspective,” and hear from a panel of fellow Northern California Duke Law alums who work as in-house counsel on a range of topics, including: how law firms can adapt to the changing needs of in-house counsel and provide value to their corporate clients in a changing legal market; best practices for fellow in-house counsel and how to succeed and advance in an in-house counsel role; the in-house career path including the transition from a firm to an in-house or executive position; and other related topics.
6:30pm-7:00pm Sign-In and Light Networking*
7:00pm-8:15pm Panel Discussion and Q&A Session
8:15pm-9:00pm Drinks (Beer, Wine, etc.), Heavy Appetizers and Networking*Optional. Do not worry if you cannot make it until 7:00. This 1/2 hr was designed specifically to give alums who may be working a little late or traveling from farther away enough time to get to the event, but also give alums who are closer something to do and an extra opportunity to network and mingle. You will still get CLE credit as long as you are present for the panel discussion.
