Update: GCs Operating Without Licenses

As promised, I tried to track down the "survey" mentioned by Corporate Counsel in their recent story about GCs operating in states where they are not licensed. The story said "...past surveys by ACC of its membership suggest that [the number of in-house counsel in this situation] could be in the hundreds or even thousands."

As it turns out, there is no such survey (ha!). In a conversation with the reporter an ACC staff member [identity protected] said that we have seen anecdotal evidence that at least some of our members are in this situation, and suggested that it could be "hundreds or thousands," but "we just don't know."

Certainly, it's more exciting the way Corporate Counsel wrote it, but is it accurate? I'll let you be the judge. Here's a link to the story again.
