Why are Legal Conferences Important?

by Legal Associations Management  |  November 17, 2021

Time away from the office while still continuing to improve your practice? That sounds like a great idea and perfectly describes what a legal conference is all about. 

Whether you are a seasoned attorney or a new one, legal conferences are an excellent tool for attorneys at any stage of their career. Offering numerous educational sessions, CLE credits, and networking opportunities, legal conferences are the perfect place to connect with other attorneys while staying up-to-date with the latest legal practices. 

During conferences like the Trial Lawyers Summit, presented by The National Trial Lawyers, attendees and vendors have the opportunity to learn from some of the greatest trial lawyers in the country, receive 24+ CLE credits plus ethics, attend social hours, and much more. The 2022 Trial Lawyers Summit will be held on January 30 - February 2, 2022, at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach in Miami, FL. For more details on this unique, family-friendly conference, visit the Trial Lawyers Summit website.

Legal Education

One of the biggest advantages of attending a legal conference is the number of CLE credits offered. Most states require that attorneys meet a mandatory CLE requirement and these legal conferences allow attorneys to meet CLE requirements on a variety of topics. This allows you to find topics that are best suited for your goals and objectives. 

As your education progresses, you can meet with experts in certain fields. Conferences allow attorneys to learn from these experts by attending seminars, workshops, and lecture-style sessions. Not only do attendees get to hear from experts in the law, but they also meet experts in other topics, like legal marketing or technology, that will help you grow your practice and even your firm. The takeaways from these legal conferences are guaranteed to boost your skills in and out of the courtroom.

Offering a plethora of topics and sessions, legal conferences allow you to prioritize your learning and help you determine what sessions will be of value to you and your firm. No matter what your educational goals are, there is a session for you.

Networking Opportunities

Any legal conference will provide you with the opportunity to network in a relaxed yet fun way. You have the opportunity to connect with other attorneys, vendors, and other legal legends. This allows for the opportunity to meet mentors or even share your expertise with young lawyers who are looking for guidance. No matter what stage you are in your career, the relationships you will make with other attendees will be indispensable. 

Most conferences also have vendor booths for attendees to explore. You will find cutting-edge tools and resources that are invaluable to you and your firm. Pay attention to the vendors at legal conferences. Many of them offer marketing tools specific to law firms, software for billing, document generating, case management, and more. Although you may want to only focus on continuing your legal education and expanding your network, remember that in order to stay up-to-date with the business side of your firm, the resources these vendors offer are the key.

Legal conferences are the perfect combination of work and play. During receptions, cocktail hours, and other social functions, you have the chance to connect with potential clients and other attorneys in a more relaxed and casual manner. Regardless of the conference you attend, staying connected throughout the year is vital in the success of your practice and firm.

As you network with other attorneys, listen to presentations, and check out vendors, you’ll start to notice legal trends. Legal conferences allow you to get a glimpse at how others are running their firms and help you decide whether or not you can adopt any of their techniques to help you improve your practice and firm. Attending legal conferences not only helps you grow your vast legal network but also helps you continue your education in a unique way. If you are determined to perfect your practice and business management, attending a legal conference, such as the Trial Lawyers Summit, is the first step.
