Learn more about the agenda

We’ve listened to your feedback and made some great changes to the LRI program this year, offering four optional early start workshop sessions on Wednesday. These optional sessions are included in the cost of Institute registration and do not require a separate registration – just show up, limited seating available. As always, the LRI agenda is packed with a host of practical and informative concurrent sessions on Thursday and Friday. Sessions are pending pre-approval for HRCI and CLE credits.
