In-House Counsel Program

The In-House Counsel Program was formed at Columbia Law School through the Reuben Mark Initiative for Organizational Character and Leadership. The In-House Counsel Program’s courses include faculty and practitioner-led workshops, simulations, and case studies taught by sitting and retired in-house counsel. Additionally, under the In-House Counsel Program, students may enroll in externships with legal departments of companies and organizations. Complementing the curricular and experiential offerings, the Mark Initiative provides innovative programming, many which bring together law and business school students. These include leadership series featuring distinguished General Counsels, Chief Legal Officers, and CEOs, who come to campus to speak directly about the partnership between the CEO and General Counsel as well as their leadership styles and contributions to an organization’s strong culture.
