If the purpose of law school is to train eager minds to “think like a lawyer,” then the purpose of a Columbia Law School seminar taught by former Facebook Inc. vice president and general counsel Colin Stretch is to teach them to think specifically like an in-house lawyer.

Stretch is teaching a seminar on the role of the general counsel in the modern economy as part of Columbia Law School’s recently established In-House Counsel Lab. The program, designed to help students better understand the role of today’s general counsel as a corporate strategist and risk manager, is supported by the Reuben Mark Initiative for Organizational Character and Leadership, a joint venture between Columbia Law and Columbia Business School.

Colin Stretch, former General Counsel of Facebook, leads a Columbia Law School In-House Counsel Lab, on February 6, 2020 in New York City.
