The panel will discuss a variety of topics, including life as in-house counsel, how their practice has changed after going in-house, some do’s and don’ts for outside counsel, and how to interface with internal clients.

Arts District Mansion
Prior to the July 28, 2022 CLE, we are encouraging members to come a little early (starting at 11:30 am) to have networking time over lunch before the CLE presentation.
We’ve found that once the presentation starts, there is little time to socialize.
So, if you’ve missed the ability to catch up with your IP colleagues (or to meet new ones), please plan to join us at the Arts District Mansion on July 28 at 11:30 am.
Noon CLE meetings are typically held at the Belo Mansion on the fourth Thursday of every month (with some exceptions).
We also host periodic breakfast CLE roundtable discussions at a North Dallas location on important IP topics.
