Date & Time
Tuesday, February 4, 2020, 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM
In recent years we have seen an influx in GCs looking to diversify their outside counsel roster which has presented law firms with the challenge of not just diversifying but also standing out amongst a crowded field of firms trying similar tactics. How do lawyers and law firms stand out? How are GCs actively giving and taking away work in efforts to improve diversity?
