On Oct. 3, ACC Chicago hosted its Annual In-house Counsel Celebration event — one of the year’s largest gatherings of Chicagoland in-house attorneys.  

This year, the chapter’s signature event was a retro carnival theme featuring various culinary stations, games, live music, and performers, including an aerialist, magicians, and other unique attractions.

ACC Chicago members, their guests, and sponsors enjoyed an evening of celebration, entertainment, and networking. The event also honored award recipients of the Thurgood Marshall Award of Excellence as well as ACC Chicago members who contributed significantly in the community through volunteerism and pro bono activism.  

The Thurgood Marshall Award of Excellence recognizes a legal professional each year in the Chicago community who has dedicated his or her career in service to advancing causes of education, diversity, and community service. Awardees have exemplified Justice Thurgood Marshall’s commitment to justice, civil rights, and legal excellence.
