Empower I Educate I Excel The Annual Convention is an exceptional opportunity to charge your batteries, sharpen your skills, and expand your network of colleagues—all of which are more important than ever.
The opening plenary session, “Empower I Educate I Excel: Honoring Courageous Plaintiffs,” will bring to life stories from three ground-breaking cases involving plaintiffs who stood up to their employers and held their ground in the face of immense adversity, not only to vindicate their own rights, but to improve the lives of others.
In addition to honoring our Courageous Plaintiffs, the Convention will feature plenary sessions on “High-Profile Sexual Harassment Cases,” “Rules Of The Road For Plaintiffs' Employment Lawyers,” and the indispensable “Year In Review: Significant Developments In Employment Law.” Dedicated program tracks on Employment Law 101, Protecting Underrepresented Workers, Trial Advocacy, and Fifth And Eleventh Circuit Law Law will help you identify sessions that are directly relevant to your practice.
