Corporate Counsel CLE Seminar
Park Hyatt Aviara, Carlsbad, CA

Companies are driving their firms to reduce their costs while they increase the quality and value of the legal services.  Corporations are also interested in firms providing services through a diverse legal team.  In the corporations' quest for optimal "value," does diversity take a back seat? In this dynamic and interactive program, you will hear whether these two goals can co-exist.  As a member of the audience, you will have the opportunity to provide "value" by weighing in on this very sensitive and critical issue through the use of electronic voting devices.
