CHICAGO - Responses to Federal Trade Commission (FTC) queries, updates in labor and employment law, hot topics in mergers and acquisitions, and an update on the U.S. Supreme Court are among key topics to be covered during the 55th annual Corporate Counsel Institute (CCI) hosted by Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law.

The institute, to be held Sept. 29 and 30 in Chicago, features leading practitioners, academics and regulatory officials who provide in-house counsels with updates on legal developments and current issues impacting business. 

This year’s institute will be held at the Northwestern Memorial Hospital Conference Center, located on the third floor of Prentice Women’s Hospital, 250 East Superior St. The location is just a few blocks from the Law School, where recent institutes have been held.

On Thursday, Sept. 29, institute highlights include a panel of legal and forensic experts who will discuss the critical first 48 hours following a data breach, as well as sessions on understanding available insurance coverage, privacy issues and conducting internal investigations in the wake of the Yates Memo.

A conversation with Keith Higgins, director, division of corporation finance, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), will take place Friday, Sept. 30; sessions on law department management and recent legal trends in companies also will be held that day.

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.
