Lawnet Conference

Palm Springs: Seminars, Networking & Golf

By Randi Mayes

Palm Springs: Seminars, Networking & Golf FOR the third year in a row, LawNet's annual conference is headquartered at the La Quinta Resort, near Palm Springs -- where the atmosphere is casual, but the networking is intense!

Once again, we'll have expert speakers, consultants, technical exhibitors, and strategists -- many from the law firms and legal departments that comprise LawNet's membership.

In addition to the educational sessions, LawNet includes a comprehensive exhibit of products and services, and last but not least, great parties.

Keynote: This year's keynote speaker is Richard Carlson, whose specialty is stress-reduction. He has authored 15 popular books including the runaway best-seller, Don't Sweat the Small Stuff.

Exhibit Hall: Our exhibit hall opens Aug. 28, with more than 90 vendors who will provide information and demonstrations of key features and benefits of their products and services.

Seminars: In addition to our traditional seminar tracks that focus on technical issues, we've launched a new track this year: Professional Development. LawNet 2001 also features educational tracks for Internet Technology; Strategy and Management; Finance; and Applications.

The Corporate & Government track offers networking opportunities to our law department members and continues to reflect the expanding and diversifying membership of LawNet.

Whether you are a technical novice or a seasoned veteran, you will find timely and practical information about a variety of automation and management topics.

We also continue our LawNet University which includes "hands-on" technical training. (Class size is limited.)
