Corporate Counsel Section
With more than 450 members, the Corporate Counsel Section (“CCS”) ranks among Minnesota’s most influential attorney organizations. It was formed in 1989 (as the “Corporate Counsel Association of Minnesota”) by Minnesota corporate attorneys to provide members with the opportunity to build contacts, improve their legal knowledge, and learn from high-profile speakers, community members, and politicians. CCS members practice in corporate legal departments and private law firms.
Corporate Counsel Section Mission Statement:
To provide section members with the opportunity to build their professional relationships with corporate legal departments and private law firms, improve their legal knowledge and offer legal services to the community.
The CCS provides these services through continuing legal education
seminars held by high-profile speakers and community leaders, community-oriented fundraising events, social/networking gatherings and outreach programs.
The Corporate Counsel Section held its annual meeting on Thursday, May 17. The
