The event, considered the premiere conference in Illinois dedicated to meet the needs of the solo and small firm lawyer, offers attendees numerous educational sessions, networking opportunities, and an exhibit hall that showcases services and products to help the solo and small firm lawyer expand their career and improve the efficiency of their law practice.

The plenary speaker at Thursday evening’s dinner is Todd Winegar, who will present his “Trials of the Century Overview” program
