Commercial Law League of America to Sponsor May 1 CLE Event in Chicago That Will Address the Billable Hour, Transitioning Between Firms, and Ethical Issues for Attorneys

On May 1, 2008, the DePaul Business & Commercial Law Journal will hold its sixth annual symposium.  This year's event is called, "Lawyers, Law Firms & the Legal Profession: An Ethical View of the Business of Law," and will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Westin Michigan Avenue hotel.  At the symposium, you can learn more about some of the issues we cover here at the JD Bliss Blog.

The symposium will feature panel discussions about the following topics:

  • "Lawyers in a Fee Quandary: Must the Billable Hour Die?"
  • "Lawyers in the Hot Seat: The State of Ethics & Professionalism"
  • "Lawyers in Transition: Ghosts from the Old Firm Haunting the New Firm"

A luncheon panel will explore the Supreme Court under the leadership of Chief Justice John Roberts and will consider the impact that the 2008 elections will have on federal jurisprudence.

Tickets for the symposium are $90.00 and the price includes the luncheon and written materials. Judges and students can attend for free.  Here is an online brochure for the event.  Up to 4.5 hours of CLE credit are offered.  You can register online at www.clla.org through the "Chicago/Spring meeting link." For more information, contact Don Carrillo at (312) 362-6178 or depaul.bclj@gmail.com.
