How is the general counsel role changing? One GC’s experience

If this site points you to something interesting we’ve seen, it’s usually a print article. But today’s reading club features a video, part of a series that the firm Morrison & Foerster has been presenting for clients and those interested in how the profession is changing.

So here’s a short video on the changing role of the general counsel. It’s a thoughtful look at the many hats a company’s top lawyer wears, giving advice, coming up with procedures and solutions with internal clients, a company’s business units. It features Priti Shetty, general counsel of ICICI Bank UK.

One thing Shetty emphasizes: Whenever she gives advice, or helps HR devise procedures, or, indeed, whatever she does, she does so as a lawyer, in a legal context. We’re sure most of you understand what that means–you can be a helpmate, but it’s always a step away from the actors, as an impartial advisor holding up the standards of the legal profession.

The whole MoFo series is worth a look; we’ll alert you as the firm posts updates. Much of it is curated by Andrew Longstreth, a former journalist who was a perceptive writer at The American Lawyer magazine some years ago.
