About the Forum

The mission of the Corporate Counsel Forum is to be the pre-eminent forum within the IBA for discussion, education and spokesmanship by, for and among corporate counsel, respecting the proper role and expectations of the professional acting for a corporation. A comprehensive publications and programme effort furthers this mission.

In particular, the forum wishes to assist its members in functioning effectively within corporate hierarchies, satisfying business objectives while rendering legal services to the corporation in accordance with the highest professional standards. The forum seeks to maintain a particular focus on topics and themes of this nature which are currently relevant to its membership. At present, these include:

  • selection of, liaison with and supervision of outside counsel;
  • professional evaluation, development, privilege and responsibility in the corporate setting;
  • globalisation and multi-jurisdictional practice;
  • managing the corporate legal function; and
  • corporate governance.
