This program will be a casual event, which will begin with several in-house attorneys discussing their path to an in-house role and how they have succeeded in an in-house environment. Following this discussion, potential mentees will be encouraged to mingle with potential mentors in a casual networking environment. Appetizers will be provided.

Guest Speakers as coordinated by Peggy Song of the In-House Committee include:

(1) Larry Chew-Executive Director and Associate GC for Maxim Integrated Products
