InterContinental Chicago

3 Illinois MCLE Credits

More than 350 litigators were in attendance as Law Bulletin Seminars presented our Annual Symposium with The Judges on November 21st in the Grand Ballroom of the InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile hotel. Twelve sitting Cook County Judges and four top local trial attorneys offered candid commentary and guidance for gaining an edge throughout the trial process. The unique Q&A segment was both entertaining and informative, as a mix of anonymously submitted questions and live audience queries were presented to the panelists. Among the elite faculty were supervising motions Judge Kathy Flanagan and Law Division Presiding Judge William Maddux. Illinois attorneys received 3 MCLE credits.
