General Counsel are more important than ever in history. Boards of Directors look increasingly to them to enhance financial and business strategy, compliance, and integrity of corporate operations. In recognition of the achievements of our distinguished Guest of Honor and his colleagues, we are presenting Charles Robinson and the system-wide Legal Division of the University of California with the leading global honor for General Counsel and Law Departments.
The University of California is a 10-campus system with five medical centers and three affiliated national laboratories. With headquarters in the University of California's Office of the President and attorneys located throughout the system, the Legal Division supports the University's fundamental missions of teaching, research, and public service by providing cogent advice, zealous advocacy, and proactive and ethical counsel.
Mr. Robinson will address “The Role of University Counsel in Influencing Controversial and Socially Charged Issues: Bridging the Divide on University Campuses.” The panelists’ additional topics include the dispute costs principle; game-changing appeals; and legal issues on campus. The full-color transcript will be made available worldwide in electronic copy.
Directors Roundtable is a State Bar of California approved MCLE provider. This activity has been approved for 1.5 hours of general MCLE credit. New York accepts reciprocal credits from California.
