Records of the Corporate Counsel Institute

 Collection
Identifier: 17/17
The records in this series fill six boxes and are comprised of correspondence, planning committee meeting minutes, speaker biographies and presentation outlines, financial statements and budgetary records, topic questionnaires, registrant lists, publicity, and published Institute proceedings. The records in this series range from 1962-1997, with the bulk dating from 1966-1971. There are very few records for the period 1971-1997.

The correspondence, arranged chronologically, is scattered over the period 1962-1991 and consists mainly of communications with Institute speakers, registrants, and guests; letters relating to the publication of speakers' papers; and inquiries about Institute programs and published proceedings. Other correspondence concerns program administration. There are also communications with the Illinois State Bar Association's Institute on Continuing Education, and with Institute exhibitors, and publicity providers. Three folders of minutes, 1967-1972, document the meetings of the Institute's planning committee. Annual reports of the Institute Director submitted to the planning committee, and lists of committee members, are included with the minutes. It should be noted that the published proceedings, which are produced from the papers delivered at the Institute, generally include footnoted references that were not included in the speaker presentation outlines distributed to registrants attending the Institute. Additional materials of interest include two folders of topic questionnaires, 1969-1970, which identify topics Institute registrants would like to see discussed at the next Institute.
