The Corporate Counsel Breakfast is an annual program hosted by the Bar Association to provide an opportunity to engage in an interactive exchange on the issues that impact corporate counsel and the law firms who service them to promote the hiring, retention, and promotion of diverse attorneys in corporations and in private practice. The Corporate Counsel Breakfast program will include the awarding of the Harry J. Pearce Scholarship.
