On January 13, 2016, the Korea Law Center co-hosted its second in-house career talk, featuring Benjamin Lee, Twitter’s Vice President in charge of litigation and intellectual property matters and Deputy General Counsel. Ben discussed how the breadth of his experience — which includes in-house experience at Twitter, Google, and AT&T, as well as his firm experience and public interest background — has been tremendously helpful in shaping his career. He also touched on various complex legal issues he has encountered in the wake of globalization, such as First Amendment issues and the legal disparities between the U.S. and foreign countries.
The Korea Law Center co-sponsored the event with the Berkeley Center for Law and Business (BCLB) and Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP. The talk is part of a lunch series presentation on legal careers as in-house counsel at top global and technology companies. Upcoming talks will feature Hyun Park, General Counsel of PG&E Corporation, on February 5, 2016, and Salle Yoo, General Counsel of Uber Technologies, Inc., on September 12, 2016. Past presenters included Andrew Kim, General Counsel of Netgear and Bryan Ko, General Counsel of Logitech.
