The Texas General Counsel Forum is the country's largest association focused on in-house leadership and peer-to-peer sharing of legal best practices. Our members include chief legal officers, general counsel, and senior managing counsel of corporations, non-profits, and government agencies. The Forum is particularly valuable for the new GC and the GC who is new to one of our city chapters.  We hope you will join and become actively involved with the Forum.

What We Offer

Our goal is to help improve the professional lives of our members through peer networking and knowledge exchange, and professional development in best practices, ethics, governance and compliance. Similar organizations provide networking too, but more often than not they focus on "practice of the law" knowledge exchange rather than sharing ideas and discoveries about leading and managing a legal team.

This professional social networking group is used to better connect you to our in-house members, as well as to facilitate communication with our staff. We encourage you to share professional publications and articles with other members that may be of value.

Access to the Forum's member directory to contact fellow General and Managing Counsels.  You may contact the Forum office for more details.

Deferred membership dues for General and Managing Counsel who leave their company and are seeking employment as a general or managing counsel may extend their Forum membership as a Displaced General Counsel (DGC) for up to 18 months from displacement. You may contact the Forum office for more details.
