Our Second Annual!

This program received great reviews last year! People value the relatively intimate size of the program, so they can interact with the faculty and other members of the audience. They especially value the number of in-house counsel who participate and the selection of hot topics we address. We don’t overpack the agenda, which allows the presenters to offer more than a cursory review. Register now to attend in person, or register for the live webcast so you can attend from the comfort of your, well, wherever you are.
