The role of in-house counsel presents a unique set of both opportunities and challenges.  Michael Kahn and Chris Osborne of Reeltime CLE found no better cinematic vehicle for illustrating the ethical and professional demands encountered by in-house counsel than the Oscar-nominated 2007 film Michael Clayton, starring George Clooney and Tilda Swinton.

Michael and Chris’ unique audience-participation format offers in-house counsel an opportunity to explore the inevitable professional demands and ethical challenges of corporate practice, and the corresponding toll that they can take on an lawyer’s mental health. The practical insights that participants gain from this seminar are designed to help guard against personal and professional pitfalls that can lead to unethical and otherwise problematic behaviors, and are applicable in any in-house setting.
