2018 Corporate Counsel ConferenceSPEED NETWORKING
SPEED NETWORKING & CORPORATE CONNECTIONS PROGRAM
HOW IT WORKS
Concept: The Speed Networking and Corporate Connections Program is one of the HNBA’s signature professional and business development initiatives. In accordance with our mission, to enrich and diversify the legal profession, the Program is designed to promote meaningful business relationships between America’s leading corporate law departments and HNBA attorney members.
Description: This focused and intimate networking opportunity allows in-house counsel and government agencies with hiring authority to identify outside counsel in practice areas where the legal department has an identified need. Law departments also use the Program as a recruiting tool for internal placement opportunities.
Format: The first hour consists of one-on-one meetings (15 minutes each) between legal departments and their selected participants. The second hour consists of a networking reception that is open to all Program participants.
*Note: Only participants selected by employers to be interviewed will participate in the one-on-one meetings.
