Section Focus

In the middle ground to the left, three panelists in business attire sit at a table covered with gray cloth, facing right. Two screens on the ceiling behind them project the same yellow-and-orange PowerPoint slide. In the background, two presenters stand in the corner near the screens, while attendees sit at a round white table, watching them.The purpose of the Corporate Counsel Section is to promote the objectives and standards of professionalism of the Houston Bar Association within the field of corporate law. The Section comprises both in-house counsel and law firm practitioners. The Section usually sponsors nine monthly lunch programs each year, which are typically held on the third Tuesday of the month, September through May.
