NEWS FROM THE LAW PRACTICE MANAGEMENT SECTION
It has been a very productive time for the ABA Law Practice Management Section, with another successful ABA TECHSHOW ® behind us, as well as a tremendous LPM Spring Meeting and great CLE programs this April in Las Vegas.
The energy of LPM is always evident when members get together to plan Section activities, network and grow practice management skills through relevant CLE. We are fortunate to benefit from a balanced mix of members, from seasoned professionals to those just entering the profession.
A resounding success for ABA TECHSHOW 2010! Questions got answered during another successful ABA TECHSHOW in Chicago, March 25-27. Attendance for the 24th annual event grew from last year, indicating the high value legal professionals continue to place on keeping current with emerging technologies that affect their practices. Technology is certainly changing the practice of law and ABA TECHSHOW continues to be the best resource for the latest legal technology news and information. Attendees this year benefited from a dynamic mix of informative educational sessions, “awesome” networking opportunities and interaction with the legal technology vendors and other service providers in the EXPO hall. If you missed the conference, be sure to visit www.techshow.com to access materials and papers and follow the conference’s blog. Next year, ABA TECHSHOW will be celebrating its 25th anniversary April 11-13 in Chicago. Be sure to mark your calendar!
Plan now for the ABA & LPM Annual Meeting in San Francisco. The LPM Section will join the entire ABA for its Annual Meeting this August in San Francisco, with Section business meetings and networking events August 4-7. The Section and ABA Women Rainmakers will host networking receptions, and there will be a full schedule of CLE programs. Be sure to stop by the LPM information exhibit at the ABA Expo to meet LPM staff, view LPM publications and get special show discounts on all LPM products.
