6th Annual #ETLConference Focuses on Addressing Client Needs

IAALS Intern

Hello! My name is Heather Buchanan, and I am a second-year law student at the University of Colorado Law School in Boulder.

I am thrilled to be attending the 6th Annual Educating Tomorrow's Lawyers Conference in Denver this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday (October 5–7). The theme of this year's conference is "Educating Tomorrow's Lawyers... to Serve Tomorrow's Clients," which will focus on client needs, improvements in delivering legal services, and—most importantly—ways to bring those concepts into law schools to better prepare the next generation of lawyers.

You can find the brochure here for a rundown of the sessions and speakers to look forward to, including a Design Thinking workshop with Margaret Hagan of Stanford’s

As always, we hope you’ll follow along and share your thoughts on social media, whether you’re here in Denver with us or not. We’ll be live tweeting much of the event with the hashtag #ETLConference on Twitter at @ETLInitiative and over on our Facebook page.

We are excited to see the engaging conversations coming out of the conference. We hope you'll join us either in person or online for what we anticipate will be lively and successful conference!
