Major, Lindsey & Africa and Ogletree Deakins are excited to share a new learning and networking opportunity with you: Our first-ever Higher Education General Counsel CLE Summit!

Through two dynamic panel discussions, we will explore a wide range of legal issues that challenge those GCs and in-house counsel working in higher education today and explore how to become—and remain—successful as a general counsel at a college or university.

Major, Lindsey & Africa consultants Heather R. Fine and Michael B. Sachs will provide their expert input on thriving as a GC in the higher education space. They will be joined by Timothy G. Lynch, Vice President and General Counsel, University of Michigan, and Ramona E. Romero, General Counsel, Princeton University— both of whom were placed in their current roles by MLA— as well as:

They will answer the questions:

  • What is keeping GCs up at night?
  • How are GCs navigating current and anticipating future legal challenges and opportunities in the higher education arena?

Ogletree Deakins will also take us through current, substantive legal issues of interest and concern to higher education GCs nationwide, such as labor & employment, investigations and similar compliance/risk management issues.
