The College of Law Practice Management does a lot of great things — honours the pioneers and brightest lights of legal management, sponsors the InnovAction Awards, supports various access to justice initiatives, etc. But next month, you have the opportunity to participate in one of the College’s most high-profile and important projects: The Futures Conference.
