General Counsel as Public Policy Advocate with Michal Rosenn, GC Kickstarter

12:10PM to 1:00PM

Baker Hall A005

Engaging with—and influencing—public policy is increasingly a core part of even small companies' businesses. And where startups and other growing companies aren't yet large or established enough to have dedicated policy departments, the job of government relations and public policy management often falls to the in-house legal team. This talk will explore the ways general counsels can make their mark on topics ranging from regulatory issues to national constitutional questions, and use the in-house legal platform to have an impact far beyond the company's walls.
