2020 Rising Professionals Symposium


This symposium was created for the rising attorney who wants to elevate his/her career. Now blended with our Leadership Summit, this year’s event will bring a new energy and networking access to involved attorneys and leaders in the association. Educational sessions will deliver “hot topic” content in short bursts, similar to the TED-talk format. A curated group of speakers will focus on honing law practice skills and preparing for what’s ahead in the courtroom. Take the initiative to build your national network by interacting with peers, FBA leaders, and conference presenters during the program discussion and engage in conversation during the evening and after-hours receptions.

Check back for details later this fall!
