The change to a virtual conference – which allows for lower costs – will make the virtual conference accessible to many ILS members, giving them the opportunity to experience the incredibly diverse and wide ranging subjects that will be covered in over 250 sessions, and the opportunity to learn from and to virtually network with some of the world’s leading lawyers.
