The College of Law Practice Management and The American University Washington College of Law are hosting “1, 2, 3, RESET! The 2010 Futures Conference and Symposium” on October 22-23 at AU in DC. I encourage anyone interested in the future of the legal market and law practice management to attend. (I am a COLPM Trustee.)  

This conference is for law firm leaders, managing partners, executive directors, c-suite law firm officers, consultants, law school deans and anyone else who plays a leading role in the business of practicing law.

Topics include The Impact on the Legal Business of Capital Markets’ Growing Interdependence, A Sea-Change in London (re equity investments and alternative business structures for law firms), and a wrap up session Now What? led by American Lawyer editor Aric Press. Other speakers include Peter Zeughauser, Simon Chester, Steve Matthews, Tim Corcoran, Marc Lauritsen, and Patrick Lamb.

I’ve attended many College meetings and they are outstanding. Unlike most conferences, vendor sponsorships play no role in the program or speaker selection. A committee of College Fellows works hard to identify topics and speakers based on the issues most likely to affect law practice management in the coming years. We are limiting the conference to 150 attendees so that we can ensure high quality discussion.

I hope to see you there.
