Necessity is the Mother of Innovation: The Legal Profession in a New Economy


February 23, 2010 4:00pm - 6:00pm

Paul Brest Hall, Munger Conference Center
Stanford University

The Stanford Center on the Legal Profession and Axiom invite you to join a discussion with leading lawyers to explore how the profession will respond to the new economic landscape. Will the recent economic downturn result in permanent changes, and how will they affect the profession? How will in-house law departments as well as traditional and alternative-model law firms operate in the new economic environment? Following opening remarks from Ben W. Heineman, Jr., former Senior Vice President and General Counsel of General Electric, a panel of Fortune 500 general counsel, firm CEOs, and an editor of the National Law Journal will share their perspectives. This event is free and open to the public; pre-registration requested. 1 hour of CLE credit will be available.

Registration is now closed.
