Three days of unrivaled educational programming, peer networking, and one-on-one discussions with business partners makes the IPMA Annual Conference & Expo the industry’s leading event for legal practice support management professionals. Not only will you hone your managerial skills and talents, but your firm will benefit from your participation in forums where other professionals share their successes.
The IPMA's specialized content is developed by your peers and focused on the distinct challenges that affect how legal practice support professionals are managed. This year's three-day educational program features hot topics, latest trends, and current issues, so whether you manage paralegals, litigation support, docketing, or other revenue-generating functions, you'll find the information you're seeking among programming on human resources, technology and innovation, communications, organizational management, and career development.
General sessions and workshop programming run over multiple tracks that allow you to choose the most fitting array of topics to meet your firm’s needs. These tracks enable you to tailor your experience and hear about what’s happening across the industry. Learn about the best practices developing at firms and corporations throughout the U.S. and Canada—a great way to find out what’s working and what’s not—and advance your career with the knowledge and tools you’ll take back to your office following the conference.
