The 3 most productive days of your year will be spent learning practical information that you can put to work immediately. Let our team of experts help you build a more profitable and productive practice. This year's conference offers a wealth of cutting-edge programs including our plenary/featured sessions, 4 program tracks, and introductory or advanced training on Fastcase, ISBA's free online legal research tool.
