Meeting Round-Up: ABA Annual Meeting in Chicago, Illinois

Briana M. Montminy

TIPS members and guests convened for the ABA Annual Meeting in Chicago on August 2–5, where the Section was headquartered at the Swissôtel, overlooking the Chicago River on Upper Wacker Drive. Once again, TIPS provided CLE at no charge to all its members, offering a total of 12 free credit hours of CLE—a tremendous member benefit! CLE programs provided information on such topics as turning the tables on difficult witnesses and counsel at deposition, protecting your client’s sensitive information in court filings from cyberattacks, the future of arbitration, protecting intellectual property in the legal cannabis industry, and defending negligent security claims.

Outgoing TIPS Chair Holly Polglase and former TIPS Chair Peter Neeson (2006–2007) congratulate former TIPS Chair John Tarpley (2009–2010), recipient of the 2018 TIPS James K. Carroll Leadership Award, at the Section’s Leadership Awards Dinner on October 13 at the Ritz-Carlton in Amelia Island, Florida.
