Enhance your trial practice skills with this full-day seminar that covers a myriad of labor and employment issues!

PRLog - Nov. 13, 2012 - CHICAGO -- Trial Practice Series: How to Prove (or Defend) Your Case,” a continuing legal education program hosted by the Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA), will be held from 9 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. on Friday, November 30, 2012, at the ISBA Chicago Regional Office, 20 S.
