To The Readers Of The Metropolitan Corporate Counsel :

I encourage all in-house lawyers in New Jersey to join us at NJCCA's Fourth Annual Full-Day Conference being held on September 26, at The Westin Governor Morris in Morristown. More than 150 NJCCA members are expected to attend 18 different CLE and career enhancement sessions that include a luncheon program about ethics issues involving in-house counsel, a plenary section on arbitration, and over 40 speakers, including attorneys from leading law firms in both New Jersey and New York City, senior executives and in-house attorneys from many Fortune 100 corporations, and experts from several national legal services providers.

The full-day program kicks off at 7:45 a.m. with meetings of NJCCA's substantive committees. Come talk with in-house practitioners who share common areas of expertise and interest. Discussion will focus on the topics, speakers, events and activities that you would like to see made available by NJCCA's committees.

As you can see by the following list, NJCCA has a great variety of committees:

  • Alternative Dispute Resolution
  • Commercial Law
  • Diversity & Minority Bar Relations
  • Environmental Law
  • Food & Drug Law
  • Intellectual Property Law
  • International Law
  • In-Transition/New-to-In-house/Mentoring Committee
  • Labor and Employment Law
  • Law Department Management
  • Litigation
  • Pro Bono
  • Small Law Department
  • 21st Century Law Committee (which addresses internet and other advanced tools to support law department management)
  • Technology Industries Committee (a novel forum for tackling issues com- mon in advising companies that develop emerging products and services)
  • Women's Networking Group
  • To be a part of the committees' discussions, contact NJCCA's Barbara Walder at njcca41@aol.com to register for NJCCA's Fourth Annual All-Day Conference. I look forward to seeing you there.

    Sincerely,

    Barry M. Pulver
