What is a SuperConference, you ask? Besides being a great excuse to take a few days off mid-week and catch up with the Windy City, it is Inside Counsel's 13th Annual Conference for in house attorneys. This year's focus is on attorneys as strategic partners in a company's development (as opposed to the older model: attorney locked in the attic for when the feces hits the fan.)
The conference begins with a one day workshop on Monday May 6, followed by two days of presentations, CLE credits, and networking events. The workshop goes from noon to 6 p.m. and is a series of presentations on the changing labor law environment. Don't worry though -- once the law is out of the way, there is a cocktail reception as well.
The remaining two days are filled with presentations on such topics as Technology Agreements via Cloud Computing, the recent election and it’s impact on the NLRB and Unions, Patent Law Reform, and developments regarding the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. We can hardly contain our excitement.
Sound titillating? Maybe not.
Sound better than the routine day to day grind? Likely.
Will you sneak away on the first evening to go to a Cubs game? You betcha.
Speaking of the Cubs, we did the leg work for you. They are playing at home on Tuesday, May 7 against the St. Louis Cardinals. It even starts at 7:05 p.m., which means you can finish the day’s activities and presentations before heading over. Fortunately, the White Sox will be out of town, so you’ll be spared the sight of them getting drubbed by the Kansas City Royals.
If you’re interested, the early bird rate, which expires on Friday, February 15, is only $449 for in house counsel, $1,095 for outside counsel. After that, the prices rise to $649 and $1,395 respectively.
