As an attendee, speaker, attorney, 85 Broads member and friend, I'm delighted to be once again attending Ms JD's annual conference. Ms JD's executive director, Jessie Kornberg (Jessie is also an 85 Broads member) has put together an impressive 3-days of sessions - Informative, timely content as well as skill building workshops.
Stand Up! Stand Out! is a conference for law students and junior attorneys focusing on the skills and knowledge these new lawyers need to distinguish themselves and succeed in the profession. Registration for the conference is now open! Registration for the conference will be limited to 175 students and 150 practitioners.
