C-Suite Leadership Institute

The C-Suite Leadership Institute (the “Program”) is an effort by senior leaders in the legal community to effectively change the landscape of the legal profession at its highest levels, specifically in the C-Suite as general counsel in Fortune 500 companies. The Program provides a platform for senior leaders to identify, develop, and promote talented diverse lawyers. It is structured with panels, workshops, and individual meetings with influential leaders.

As we continue to follow the directives of our elected officials and prioritize the health and safety of our community, we have decided this year to host the Program virtually. The Program panels will feature insights from Fortune 100 GCs, consultants, and executive search professionals, and focus on topics such as leadership development, executive presence, communications, corporate governance, and crisis management. There will also be group sessions and networking opportunities to promote networking amongst peers and leaders.


  • Average tenure of experience 15-20 years.
  • Direct report to General Counsel or within 2 reporting levels to General Counsel.
  • Applicant must manage at least 5 full-time attorneys and is the lead lawyer advising a business.
  • MCCA members will be given priority but all diverse attorneys are encouraged to apply.

* If you are an early or mid-career lawyer or are a senior in-house counsel who is an individual contributor, MCCA is offering a 12-month program as part of our Sources of Success program. Please click here for more information.


The success of the Program depends on the commitment that each participant makes to the Program.  If accepted, you must be completely free of professional duties during the Program and you must attend all scheduled virtual sessions and activities.  There is usually a long wait-list and if you cannot participate fully, please provide that opportunity for someone else who can be engaged by declining this invitation.

The Program starts on Tuesday, July 28 and concludes on Wednesday, July 29.  The Program will be virtual and additional information and instructions will be provided to Program participants.


The Program is gratis for selected participants. Participants will be notified via email if they have been selected to participate in this year’s Program and will be provided with additional information regarding agendas and registration.


The 2020 C-Suite Application is now closed. Selection will be based on a first-come, first-served basis and MCCA members will be given priority. The first 15 people will get to be part of a special future GC program that includes personal assessment and feedback with Russell Reynolds Associates.
