Participants will learn how these general counsel handle staffing issues inside and with outside counsel, the big issues on their desks this year, and the way they straddle the legal/business role.

Among the speakers will be Sheila Cheston, vice president and general counsel, BAE Systems Information and Electronic Systems Integration Inc.; Lawrence Greenberg, chief legal officer, The Motley Fool Inc.; Anastasia Kelly, executive vice president and general counsel, MCI, and Ellen J. Vargyas, general counsel, American Legacy Foundation.
