ADDITIONAL SPEAKERS TO BE ANNOUNCED

The Utah State Bar invites you to attend the 2015 Fall Forum at the Grand America Hotel on November 19 and 20, 2015. The Fall Forum has been updated to meet the needs of Utah’s diverse legal community. The presenters include some of the most prolific and engaging continuing legal education providers in America. Attendees at the full conference will fulfill fourteen hours of CLE, including ethics and civility. Attendees will receive practical skills that can be applied immediately to improve any law practice.

We would like to express our gratitude to the members of the Fall Forum committee, who have worked tirelessly to ensure that the 2015 Fall Forum continues its tradition as the most well attended bar conference in Utah. Their work provided a dramatic increase in value for attendees and greatly increased the ingenuity and diversity of our efforts.

However, this year’s Fall Forum is more than just a vehicle for obtaining CLE credits. It is an opportunity to move forward. The Fall Forum provides opportunities to network and socialize with colleagues and friends to build the relationships that lead to referrals, contacts and mentors. These activities include an exciting after-party, a judicial reception at the new federal courthouse, and active breaks that encourage interaction among attendees. Perhaps the most exciting new change is a new partnership. This year, the Fall Forum is joining with the Utah Minority Bar Association to host their annual scholarship banquet. Please join us at these wonderful events by registering for the 2015 Fall Forum by contacting the Utah State Bar.

Sincerely,

Gabriel K. White
2015 Fall Forum Committee Co-Chair
