What Past Participants are Saying…

"The substantive content is excellent and by far the best of any similar conference or CLE opportunity that I have attended."


"The range of topics was all highly relevant, and I got a lot out of the seminar and intend to avail myself of the materials in the app going forward. Also, there is no better connection than one made in person and that’s greatly appreciated."
