One of the most anticipated enhancements for In The House members is the upcoming release of a private, online community exclusively for in-house legal professionals. This forum will enable In The House members to freely exchange ideas, best practices, and conduct career-focused discussions in a confidential and secure environment.

“The results of our most recent member survey illustrated how the roles and responsibilities of in-house counsel have grown significantly in the last five years,” says Chris Colvin, founder of In The House. “We strive to meet our members’ evolving needs by providing career development tools, law department best practices, and opportunities to develop strategic relationships with other in-house counsel. Our new website and enhanced resource center (www.inthehouse.org) will allow our members to access content and resources to support their efforts to network, learn, and advance their careers.”

About In The House

With over 23,000 individual members reaching over 85% of Fortune 500 legal departments, In The House is the fastest growing private network for in-house counsel. In The House is an exclusive community for in-house legal professionals, founded by visionary Chris Colvin in 2011.

Today, In The House provides its members with career development tools, law department best practices, and the opportunity to develop strategic relationships with other in-house counsel.
