Practicing In-House in an Increasingly Integrated World (21664). 2 units. This course will explore the challenges faced by a senior in-house lawyer in today’s increasingly integrated international business environment. We will do so through a series of problems faced by the legal staff of multi-national corporations. The "cases" in this course pose questions about how to confront legal and ethical issues in many different national markets, using specific illustrations drawn from the contemporary business world -- e.g., the Sony hacking incident, Google's response to censorship in China, Walmart’s challenges arising from the fire in the Bangladesh installation, and the obstacles to Uber's business model around the world. These cases involve a broad range of considerations: ethics, reputation, risk management, international public policy and politics, culture, business, communications and corporate citizenship. The course will explore the skills needed by inside counsel to address these challenges, the increasingly global role of in-house counsel in large corporations, and the challenges to the profession from this demanding new form of legal practice. Permission of the instructor required. Enrollment limited to twenty-two. Self-scheduled examination. M.S. Solender and S.M. Cutler.
