Expanded programming highlights Annual Conference 2004

Issue November 2003

AC04As a great benefit to members, the MBA is expanding its programming for Annual Conference 2004, which will be held Jan. 22-24, 2004, at the Sheraton Boston Hotel.

In past years, the MBA's Annual Conference programming fit into just one day. But not anymore! We've added a full, extra afternoon of talks, demonstrations, roundtables and section meetings on Thursday, Jan. 22 to give attendees many more opportunities to listen, learn and network.

Based on the success of last year's CLE seminars "How to Start and Run" and "300 Ways to Use Your Law Degree," we've developed two tracks of half-hour talks under the heading "Managing Your Practice & Career" that are geared for newer lawyers, law students as well as attorneys who are looking for new information on law practice management or career options.

In addition, on both Thursday afternoon and Friday afternoon, we're offering a series of half-hour "Tech Talks." These informal sessions will give attendees an overview of the latest tools, techniques and services available to handle the demands of your practice in today's fast-paced business climate.

Many of the companies offering member benefits through the MBA's new Legal Tech Toolbox will be participating.

And it's not just the Thursday programming that's new this year! Friday's round of Recent Developments programs also have expanded, with new seminars on Appellate Practice and Procedure, Corporate Governance and Juvenile Law . There also will be a panel discussion on "The Future of Law Practice" with noted futurist Charles F. Robinson.
