Lawyer as Legal Risk Manager
Thursday, April 5, 2018 | 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM
Lawyers need to do more than simply react when the client has a question to be answered, a contract to be drafted or a dispute to be defended. They need to fully understand not just the legal risks facing their clients, but all other risks such as reputational risks, strategic risks, and operational risks, to name just a few. This program will explore how today’s general counsel identifies, manages and mitigates all those different risks on behalf of a multitude of stakeholders such as the CEO, the Board of Directors, the employees, the shareholders, the regulators, the media, and the communities in which the company operates. The program will also explore how the in-house lawyer can proactively uncover misconduct that may be ongoing within a company and more importantly how to work to eliminate the root causes that may be incenting that misconduct.
This program is presented in partnership with the Rutgers Law School Center for Corporate Law & Governance. For more information about the center, visit cclg.rutgers.edu.
There will be a reception immediately following.
