No magazine editor is an island. As a career journalist who once considered law school (I got as far as accepted-students day), I’ve had to study up on the legal profession. And after a year as Corporate Counsel’s editor in chief, there’s always still more to learn. That’s why we established an advisory group of in-house counsel this month (see the full roster on page 12) to help us originate stories, react to news events, and better serve our readers. When I queried this group (via e-mail, of course; these folks are busy) for their thoughts on how to cover the crises rippling through the Fortune 500, they wrote me about the need for practical, hands-on advice for in-house lawyers. Our Corporate Crackdown package aims to do just that. In “Common Sense for Uncommon Times” (page 64), a panel of experts offers guidance on securities issues. Two guest pieces by law firm partners, “In-House Inferno” (page 71) and “When the Bell Tolls” (page 75), advise corporate counsel on how to act if their superiors ignore concerns about alleged wrongdoing, and what to say when the SEC phones. (The short answer, not surprisingly, is to forward the call to your outside counsel.) But it isn’t all due diligence and despair in the magazine this month. For a little light relief, check out new senior editor Brian Zabcik’s thoughtful review of The Rise of the Creative Class (“Austin’s Powers,” page 131) and contributing writer Alec Foege’s Outbox column. The original headline was “Play That Funky Music, White Shoe” (page 186). That title alone made us chuckle, but maybe we just really needed a laugh.
