CHICAGO --- The legal and regulatory implications of cybercrime, the security and privacy of personal devices in the workplace and their impacts on the corporation are among key topics to be covered during the 52nd Annual Corporate Counsel Institute hosted by Northwestern University School of Law.

The institute, to be held Oct. 3 and 4 in the School of Law’s Thorne Auditorium, 375 E. Chicago Ave., on the downtown Chicago campus of Northwestern University, features leading practitioners, academics and regulatory officials who provide in-house counsel with updates on legal developments and current issues impacting business. 

Institute highlights include an update on antitrust developments from Deborah L. Feinstein, director of the Bureau of Competition with the Federal Trade Commission, and perspectives from the Department of Justice’s Associate Deputy Attorney General Iris Lan on cyber-security. Additional features include a conversation with senior executives who will share what they expect from their general counsel and small group break-out sessions for in-house attorneys to discuss current issues and concerns.

“This Institute is the Midwest’s most important gathering of influential leaders and innovative thinkers in the in-house community,” said Nicholas L. Giampietro, institute chair and executive vice president, chief legal officer and corporate secretary, Reyes Holdings, LLC. “The opportunity to engage with regulators and experienced in-house lawyers and firm practitioners who are on the front lines of cutting-edge issues makes for a truly unique educational experience.”  

Designed exclusively by a committee of general counsels from some of the nation's leading corporations, Northwestern Law's Corporate Counsel Institute provides a forum to learn from leading regulators and practitioners in the field, and for peers to network and discuss the hottest issues that in-house counsels are grappling with today.
