How Do I Participate in Corporate Connections?
Law Firm Attorneys:
Law Firm attorneys must be employed by a CMCP member law firm, or join CMCP as an Individual with membership dues paid before the close of program registration. To confirm your membership status, visit https://cmcp.org/members/.
Corporate Connections in-house counsel participants commit to providing Attorneys of Color from law firms with access to business development. Please respect this mission when registering law firm attorneys to participate in the program. If you have questions, please contact CMCP Executive Director Robert White at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CMCP assigns Corporate Connections interviews based on a law firm (not an individual attorney.)
Each law firm is responsible for designating the individual(s) or team to attend scheduled interviews. Each attorney who attends interviews must be registered for general program registration. Attorneys representing the firm should be well prepared and able to discuss concisely the relevant practice area. Interviewers expect to meet with attorneys of color with expertise in the designated practice areas.
CMCP member organizations (companies and public agency legal departments) and Non-Member Companies and Public Agencies may participate in Corporate Connections. Attorneys must complete the program registration before the Corporate Connections registration deadline. Additionally, CMCP must expressly confirm availability and interviews in the in-house attorneys’ selected practice areas. For more information, email email@example.com.

DO NOT MATCH REQUESTS:
CMCP understands there may be companies, public agencies, or law firms with which an organization cannot meet due to conflicts or other reasons.
