44th Annual Federal Practice Seminar

You are invited to the 44th Annual Federal Practice Seminar, to be held on May 24, 2018, at Windows on Minnesota on the 50th floor of the IDS Center. 

Christian Picciolini, co-founder of Life After Hate, will be our Mason Memorial Lunch Speaker. Mr. Picciolini will recount his remarkable journey from life as a neo-nazi skinhead to a new mission fighting hatred and bigotry. Watch his recent appearance on 60 Minutes, click here.

The innovative plan for the rest of the seminar is equally exciting. Outstanding presenters—which include judges and experts in a variety of fields—will speak on topics spanning federal civil and criminal practice today. In addition to opportunities to network with friends and colleagues, the seminar will feature dynamic speakers on such topics as:

  • Cutting-edge legal issues in cell phone forensics, cryptocurrencies, and email tracking, taught in engaging “Pop-Up Talks” throughout the day;  
  • Practical sessions on honing your jury trial and settlement skills;
  • Break-out segments about arbitration, visual advocacy in litigation, and the frontier of surveillance and privacy in criminal law;
  • The rising tide of hate crime in the U.S.; and
  • The annual Supreme Court Review.

Windows on Minnesota in the IDS Center is a convenient and exciting venue. The day will begin with a continental breakfast and end with a reception. To view the agenda, click here.  Please join us.
