Welcome to the Section of Litigation Committee Callathon Resources Page!
If you speak with a member: Good [morning/afternoon], my name is [COMMUNICATOR FULL NAME]. I’m a [LEADER] with the American Bar Association Section of Litigation.
I’m calling today because I see you are a young lawyer in California. The Section of Litigation's Section Annual Conference is May 3–5, 2017, and it's considered the premier event for litigators. Here are some reasons why this event may be of interest to you:
Interesting plenary topics—watch top litigators compete for the best closing argument with $40k for charity at stake at Shoot Out at the Barbary Coast Corral
Breakout sessions on handling social media ESI, the new Supreme Court, improving your negotiation skills, and taking a WOW deposition
Networking events such as Interactive Design Night at Autodesk Gallery and the It’s Lit Afterparty, designed by young lawyers for young lawyers
Event speakers Tina Tchen, Assistant to President Obama and Chief of Staff to First Lady Michelle Obama and Hon. Therese M. Stewart, California Court of Appeal Justice
The Section has a meeting mentors program where attendees can sign up before the conference to be matched up with a mentor. Mentees can communicate with mentors before and at the event to become more familiar with the SAC.
Only $399 for first-time attendees (even non-ABA members)!
