General Counsel Forum

The General Counsel Forum is composed of general counsel from public and private corporations that meet in a peer setting to engage in interactive sessions around the governance issues most relevant to their unique role in their organizations.  The Forum is focused on supporting and enabling these general counsel to implement good governance practices, particularly those that advance the long-term strategic interests of their corporations, and to become true counselors to the board on critical governance and business matters. 

The most recent session of the Forum was held on May 9, 2019, featuring Bill McNabb (former CEO and Chairman of Vanguard Group) and Bruce Sewell (former Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary at Apple, Inc.).

If you are a general counsel that is interested in joining the General Counsel Forum, or for more information, please contact the Center's Executive Director, Kristin Bresnahan, at or 212-854-0083.
