Q&A with ICANN General Counsel on the legal advice that ICANN receives and how that supports the ICANN mission

- Background/ Importance: The bottom-up process and contributions via the multistakeholder model are the core of ICANN but claims have regularly been made that the legal advice provided to ICANN does not support that. This session seeks to explore the reasons these claims surface by examining both the nature of the questions asked, the laws/guidelines that are consulted, the processes by which this advice is produced, how this differs for internal and external counsel and how it is then shared with the community.
- Session Goals/Expected Outcomes: A major step forward in transparency around the production of legal advice, a better understand of the operating practices the legal team work within and ideas for how to continue this process to increase community scrutiny of legal advice received by ICANN.
- Session format: Q&A with ICANN General Counsel on the legal advice that ICANN receives and how that supports the ICANN mission
