FIRST CHAIR AWARDS

The annual First Chair awards program now in its seventh year, is a full day conference program followed by an evening awards gala. It has become the must‐attend event for in‐house counsel and their partners in the private legal community. Attended by more than 500 attorneys from around the country, this event will honor in‐house counsel from some of the country’s most recognized companies, who have made significant contributions to the legal community.

The event includes a full day of CLE programming presented by First Chair faculty for our in‐house counsel community and select sponsors. The full‐day event will include a General Counsel Panel followed by a private luncheon. Thereafter, attendees will be able to choose from a number of Breakout Sessions led by top law firm practitioners and members of the in‐house community.

After the Conference, First Chair will host its 2018 Award Gala at The Montgomery, Chicago’s hottest venue, which will feature our awards presentation to the 2018 First Chair Award Recipients.
