SBM Next Conference: Shape the Future of Your Law Practice Today
Formerly the Annual Meeting/Solo & Small Firm Institute, the NEXT Conference focuses on the future of law practice by bringing Michigan lawyers together in a whole new way to learn, share ideas, make connections, and more. Tailor the program to your needs by creating your own unique experience. Want to attend a section meeting, grab lunch, and catch an educational session or two? We’ve got you covered. Or maybe you’d rather focus on education and networking? You can do that too with a new, inclusive “all-member” lunch and reception. With two day, one day, and a la carte pricing options, it’s the conference that fits your schedule. Your conference, your way.
Dan Abrams, chief legal analyst for ABC News and founder and CEO of Abrams Media, will kick off the NEXT Conference by delivering the opening keynote presentation at 9:00 a.m. Thursday, September 28. There is no cost to attend the keynote.
