Janders Dean & Chicago-Kent College of Law – Present the Legal Horizons Conference (July 14, 2016)

Screen Shot 2016-05-25 at 6.06.11 PM“Our exclusive audience will be a deliberate mix of private practice lawyers, corporate legal champions, public sector standouts, senior knowledge and technology personnel, representatives from the emerging and evolving areas of legal pricing, process improvement, project management and service delivery enhancement, – and educators from leading institutions. We believe that at events such as this one, the best knowledge sharing comes from a delegate community whose job titles have been “mixed up to fix it up”.

We’re pleased to confirm that we have assembled a unique speaking faculty to bring you lessons from both inside and outside of the legal industry. These voices represent consumers and suppliers of legal services, scholars, and individuals dedicated to social justice.

Representatives from a vast range of organizations will present on the day, sharing their experiences on a variety of successes and failures. Delegates will share insights on emerging trends and issues, discuss real successes and failures, and absorb opportunities to transform the practice of law. We aim to give you the inspiration to do something different when you return to work.”  Learn More Here – http://chicago.jandersdean.com/
