Want to You Know You Want to Go!!

April 9-10, 2019 (Tuesday/Wednesday) at the Sheraton New Orleans


  • Need a tech tuneup?  Law office management advice?
  • How about the latest legislative updates to civil and criminal law? Substantive law developments?
  • Want to knock out the entire CLE requirement early (with carryover for 2020) and be done with it? Up to 13.5 hours credit.
  • Don't want to spend a lot of money, but yet walk away with news that you can use?
  • Info and tips for client development and communication? Modern marketing?

Whether newly minted or seasoned, a small or large office practitioner, tech able or not, build this conference around your needs from three simultaneous topics by notable speakers.
  • But I work in a large office?  No problem - the technology and substantive law topics are useful to every practitioner.

It's all here in one conference:  Substantive law, state of the art law practice management & technology, ethics, professionalism, marketing, the business end of law and quality of life. Exhibitors for law office services will be onsite to answer your questions. And, of course, there'll be the usual unmatched camaraderie from fellow practitioners from around the state.

NEWS THAT YOU CAN USE!  The ONLY Conference Dedicated to the Small Office Practitioner and Technology!
