ACC's Small Law Department Network consists of ACC members who either a) practice in, or are concerned with issues relating to, small corporate law departments (while there is no specific limit, it is expected that most members will practice in departments with between one and five attorneys) or b) practice in larger departments either as a legal "generalist" or at a remote location with few lawyers.
The network's goal is to develop and explore practice methods by which attorneys in small law departments and generalists in larger departments can most effectively and efficiently provide legal services to their corporate clients.
The network arranges programs at each Annual Meeting and collects and develops information of particular interest to small law department practitioners and generalists. Information will be disseminated through ACC and network publications, Web Site, Email, conference calls, and programs. Further, it will function within the ACC organization (through coordination with staff, leadership, chapters, and other networks) to ensure issues concerning small law departments and generalists are appropriately addressed.
