NACD - National Association of Corporate Directors

Resource Center: The Role of the General Counsel/Corporate Secretary

Once seen solely as legal advisors, general counsel are now regularly called upon to provide the board with an objective opinion about the company's strategy based on their legal and ethical training. In fact, almost 70% of NACD's full board memberships have a general counsel on their board roster.

This resource center contains the guidance and tools that NACD’s general counsel and corporate secretaries rely on most to advise and support the board. For more information on all of our topics visit the full list of Board Resource Centers.
