Turning a career spotlight on up-and-coming in-house counsel

The senior legal team of a global law department, in an industry-leading beverage company, makes it a practice to focus every quarter an hour or so on one or two lawyers in the department. The lawyer who supervises the lawyer prepares a summary of material and comments about the lawyer. During the “career spotlighting” session, the general counsel and his direct reports share their impressions about the lawyer and what career development steps make sense.

This excellent practice helps the senior lawyers develop similar perspectives on junior lawyers and chart a career development course for them.
