ST. LOUIS - Missouriar -- The Association of Corporate Counsel – St. Louis Chapter and the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis (BAMSL) joined forces once again for a thriving 39th annual Corporate Counsel Institute (CCI) on May 9, 2024. Held at the Ritz-Carlton in Clayton, the event drew over 200 in-house counsel, private practice attorneys, and legal service professionals for a day of learning and connection.

The CCI provided a full day of valuable Continuing Legal Education (CLE) sessions. Sponsors presented informative talks on a variety of timely topics, ranging from navigating the challenges and opportunities of Artificial Intelligence to mastering the nuances of M&A trends, and from navigating ethical dilemmas in internal investigations to fostering inclusive leadership teams.

Ty Ulmer, CCI Committee Chairperson, expressed his gratitude to all involved. "The success of the CCI hinges on the generous support of our sponsoring law firms and legal industry exhibitors," he said. "Their dedication and resources are essential each year. We also extend our sincere thanks to BAMSL and its staff. Their longstanding partnership with the Chapter is invaluable. By working together, the Chapter and BAMSL create an event offering a broader and more comprehensive experience than either organization could achieve independently."
