This course focuses on the unique aspects of working as a lawyer within a corporation. Practice in this setting (whether as the sole in-house lawyer or one of several hundred in a global company) can be intellectually challenging and personally and professionally fulfilling. In-house practice can also involve issues and risks which are different from practicing law in a firm. This course covers the role and function of in-house lawyers; how legal departments can be organized and effectively managed; retaining and working with outside counsel; and special ethical and policy challenges for in-house counsel, including compliance; attorney-client privilege; ethical dilemmas; and prosecutions of in-house attorneys. Eligibility: Open to all except 1Ls. Course format: lecture. Grading: other (see syllabus), 100%. This course may be taken for an S/U grade.
