Winds of Change: Where the Legal Industry is Going and How to Harness the Power of Opportunity

The legal industry is continuing to change at an alarmingly fast rate. Please join us as we discuss some of the most pressing issues affecting both the practice of law and the law library profession. The programs and speakers will provide the information and tools necessary to identify and seize opportunities, position ourselves as leaders and act as effective change agents within our organizations. There will also be ample time to visit with exhibitors and connect with your colleagues.

We look forward to seeing you there!
