The practice of law is changing, stress is increasing, job satisfaction decreasing, finding clients is more difficult, legal fees are on the rise and poor attitudes are widespread. It is our winter of discontent. We need your help.

The Chicago Bar Association has gathered lawyers from diverse practice areas, law schools, the judicial system and government service to study some of the challenges which exist in the profession, law schools and the judiciary.

The group will identify specific, current and difficult issues in particular areas and will present solutions to them in writing. Your assistance and input in this project will be invaluable.

Help us identify the key challenges or difficulties in your area of practice and, more importantly, help us develop solutions to them.

A reception will immediately follow the summit.
