General Counsel Advisory Committee

The mission of the GCAC is to engage attorneys employed as general counsels as mentors and advisers to students enrolled in the Wake Forest School of Law. The GCAC advances the School of Law by leveraging the knowledge, experience, and network of general counsels. GCAC members advise and provide an environment that encourages the Dean, faculty, students, and general counsels to freely share ideas, strategies, and philosophical approaches to representing in-house careers. The GCAC advises programmatic development/enhancement for Business Law Program and MSL Program. The GCAC assists the Employment Office and helps students navigate in-house careers by identifying internship and career opportunities. Finally, GCAC members provide support and assistance for the fundraising efforts of the School of Law.
