With a variety of topics to benefit both new and seasoned attorneys, this program duo — the 2020 Business Law Institute and the 2020 Business Law and International Practice Sections Annual Meetings — equips you with the skills and knowledge to enhance your practice and the service you provide to clients.

The 2020 Business Law Institute kicks things off with practical issue-spotting, litigation avoidance, and strategic advice on diverse matters relevant to business law practitioners, including staples and hot topics like securities laws, restrictive covenants, opportunity zones, distressed asset sales and start-up businesses.

Stay for the 2020 Business Law and International Practice Sections Annual Meetings to experience a mix of attendee favorites and international hot-topics that are relevant to both domestic and cross-border practices alike, including a review of the ABA M&A deal points study, a discussion with NC Business Court judges, updates on CFIUS and trade matters, and practical strategies for navigating the complex landscape of IP and data-privacy matters. And you won’t want to miss a new, interactive approach to satisfying your ethics/professional responsibility credit at the inclusive law practice session before lunch.
