Agenda

General Counsel are increasingly leaders in the legal and business community, and in broader society. Boards of Directors look to them to offer leadership on a host of issues within a business. In recognition of our distinguished Guest of Honor’s personal accomplishments in his career and his leadership in the profession, we are honoring Michael Solender, Vice Chair and General Counsel of EY, with the leading global honor for General Counsel. The panel discussion he will lead will address “Counsel as Citizen and Business Advisor.” Is the lawyer’s identity defined by her client? Can she serve her clients and the public? Can she be the “wise” advisor to business, government, and civic leaders? The program will also address the importance of diversity and legal education to the discussion of a lawyer’s citizenship. The transcript of this event will be made available worldwide in electronic copy.
