Have you ever wanted to sit in on the private conversations of top experts in the field, discussing their most cutting-edge ideas and strategies on the hottest issues of the day? This is your ideal opportunity. For the first time ever, AILA is providing a forum for the most frequently-requested speakers to engage in an interactive conversation on the hottest topics, as chosen by the AILA membership. On each topic, two experienced lawyers discuss and debate cutting-edge strategies with the opportunity for any member of the audience to voice agreement, disagreement, or ask questions of the speakers. Speakers are instructed to provide new information or new ways of thinking about issues. Speakers are also given suggested bullets for each panel, but are encouraged to amend or change the bullets to address the most current issues on each topic. View the complete conference program here. Choose Your Program-Morning, Afternoon, or Both!The program is divided into completely independent morning and afternoon tracks. This innovation allows attendees to choose the morning program, the afternoon program, or both. The topics and speakers in the morning and afternoon are different, so attendees can decide which program they prefer and have the rest of the day free, or choose to attend both programs and hear panels on a different subject matter. All attendees will receive an electronic version of the 2013 AILA Midyear Conference Handbook.

Registration & Pricing:
The conference program is divided into two completely independent morning and afternoon programs. Attendees have a choice of attending the morning program, the afternoon program or the full day. The topics and speakers in the morning and afternoon will be different, so attendees can choose which program you prefer and have the rest of the day free, or choose to attend both programs and hear these panels on a different subject matter area.
