Transitions: The Profession and Next Generations – Next Session, Chicago, April 28, 2016


Good spirited and collaborative approaches to transitions in the legal profession’s leadership are key to the profession’s continued health and service. Fashioning those approaches engages the bench, the bar, and the clients. Successful transition benefits the justice system through shared experience, opportunity, and growth. In this high-interest 2016 series, judges, litigators, and corporate counsel drill deeply into how all sectors of the justice delivery system are addressing this core need. Judicial roles and techniques, client interests (with respect both to the courtroom and to the board room), litigation skills and economics are among the contributing considerations. The Association is pleased to work with other organizations in this outreach, including the principal relationship with CHiPs. For district court orders encouraging Next Generation advocacy opportunities (generously compiled by CHiPs) see here.

SPONSORSHIP: The Profession and Next Generations Series Sponsorships ($5,000) includes marketing recognition in both the respective venue program and in the materials which will explore the topic at the Federal Circuit Bar Association’s annual flagship “Bench and Bar 2016” – Nashville, Tennessee.

The Included seats are available to be used at the discretion of the sponsor (firm, clients, others). It also includes “Young Lawyer” Association memberships (each through June, 2017).
