Welcome from the Conference Chair

The Regional Legal Management Conference Planning Committee invites you to join us for networking and live education this fall. The West (Regions 4, 5 and 6) conference will take place September 7-9 at the Venetian Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada. The East (Regions 1, 2 and 3) conference will take place October 12-14 at the Renaissance Nashville in Nashville, Tennessee. The conference runs from midday Thursday through midday Saturday. Attend one or both conferences to maximize your networking and education!

The committee is putting together a schedule filled with top-notch educational speakers that will cover a wide array of topics to ensure that there is something for everyone. The sessions will also span a range of skill levels, from new legal managers and executives to those with decades of experience. Come check out what’s happening in profitability, innovation, strategy, leadership, technology and more.

While at the conference, you will have ample time to check out the product and service exhibitors enhancing our knowledge of tools to help our organizations. Our business partners provide expertise on legal management solutions to increase your potential in your law department or firm. Networking is one of the biggest keys to success during the event, so we have planned opportunities for you to meet with fellow executives and business partners to further grow your relationships and resources in the field.

The Regional Legal Management Conferences are a great way to reconvene with other legal management professionals, sharing ideas and best practices while getting a great education each day. On behalf of the planning committee, we look forward to making this year’s conferences exceptional.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Overall it was great. There were many unique and very useful sessions, and in every session I attended, I learned something. Having some of the business partners give presentations was good, as it was nice to have someone with the hands-on expertise give a presentation.
