To The Readers Of The Metropolitan Corporate Counsel:

In our ongoing quest to provide the in-house community with the most cutting-edge, informative and interesting continuing legal education programs and enjoyable professional networking opportunities, I am pleased to inform you of the exciting array of events that we have scheduled in the upcoming months. You may find details about, and register for, these programs on the NJCCA’s Upcoming Events page at http://www.acc.com/chapters/njcca/index.cfm. A brief overview of the upcoming programs follows. We look forward to seeing you at all or some of these events.

On Thursday, May 2, NJCCA and Thompson Hine are offering a one-hour webinar on the topic of “The Evolution of Social Networking in the Workplace: How to Keep Your Social Media Policy Relevant in the Face of Constant Change.” On Thursday, May 9, NJCCA and the New Jersey Intellectual Property Association will present a program at the Hyatt Regency in New Brunswick on the topic of “Biopharma Intellectual Property Issues in Growth Markets: Brazil, Russia, India, China and Korea.” On May 10, former New Jersey Supreme Court Justice Gary Stein, now Special Counsel with the firm of Pashman Stein, will offer a thought-provoking presentation on the topic of “America’s Broken System of Campaign Finance Regulation” at the Park Avenue Club in Florham Park. Also on May 10, the NJCCA, in conjunction with the New Jersey Defense Association and the Employers Association of New Jersey, will present “Social Media 2.0 – Beyond the Basics: The Advantages and Pitfalls of Social Media in Litigation and the Workplace” at the Woodbridge Hilton in Iselin.

On May 26, as a special feature of NJCCA’s annual Spring Cocktail Reception, we will offer two hours of CLE programming. The first program, to be presented by Platinum Sponsor Greenberg Traurig, will be on the always-relevant topic of “How to Avoid Law Firm Overbilling.” The second segment, to be presented by Platinum Sponsor Lowenstein Sandler, will address “Ethical Issues in Dealing With Corporate Employees, Current and Former, in Litigation.” Stick around after the CLE for the highly anticipated, always fun cocktail reception at the gorgeous Pleasantdale Chateau.
