From the DRI State Reps/Executive Directors Meeting in New Orleans.
The speakers here remind me that during these challenging times in our nation, for our economy and for our profession, it is important to reflect on how my career has progressed. DRI provides the finest CLE and networking opportunities around. Because of the vast array of CLE and practice resources available, connection to DRI gives lawyers the opportunity to change their practice quickly to repsond to trends and downturns. Panelists are emphasizing Return On Investment. (ROI) DRI provides that. A few dollars in these financial times invested in our careers now will yield dividends in our careers in the future. Query whether our transactional lawyers can pick up a few skills from DRI to engance their practice and that of their firms. The Commercial Litigation Seminar, April 22-24 in Chicago would be a good place to start.
