If you’re trying to choose a practice area, but are unsure where you will fit or may falter, come hear leaders from a variety of practice areas--from commercial to civil practice, general litigation to transactional work, hybrid practices that cross those lines to specialty niches--provide the pluses, pitfalls, and candid insights about what the work is really like and what it takes, day to day, to succeed in each arena. Following a fast-paced full group session, breakouts will ensue for an even deeper dive, your specific questions, and networking suggestions.
