GC careers: a panel discussion
The University of Virginia School of Law recently held a panel discussion on the general counsel career path. Entitled "Life on the Other Side: Career as a General Counsel," the program was conducted by Professor Earl Dudley, and panelists included UVA alumni Byron Marchant, Sharon Owlett, Tom Sidman, and Jeffrey Ferguson, as of whom work as general counsels. The panel commented on the role of the general counsel as a responsible ethics officer and explained that an aspiring general counsel must possess experience and knowledge in a number of areas before taking the corporate plunge. A number of students hoping to explore opportunities outside law firms attended the meeting.
