Whether you’re already attending Lawyernomics 2018 – or are perhaps still on the fence with your decision – there are plenty of reasons to attend this year’s conference.
The legal industry is changing – no doubt about it. Driven by consumer demand and digital advancements, these changes are affecting the way attorneys market and manage their brands online.
If only there was a conference that spoke to this … One that could further educate, guide, and help attorneys reach their goals.

We’ll celebrate Mark’s accomplishments as he transitions Avvo to new leader, Jason Moss.
Lawyernomics pulls a large crowd of successful and ambitious attorneys across practice areas and from across the country. We’ve built time into the agenda for practice area roundtables at lunch which will be a great opportunity to exchange ideas.
7) CLE credits and other education
We’ve already secured five CLE credits in California and three in IL. For those of you in all other states, there’s plenty of other educational sessions to attend – two full days – in fact. Check out the agenda here. We’ll let you know as other states are approved.
8) What happens at Lawyernomics …
Two words: “Vegas, baby!” Of course, you’ll make sure to attend every Lawyernomics session, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t time to enjoy everything Las Vegas has to offer after hours. This year’s Lawyernomics conference is being held at the beautiful Venetian hotel. The conference is also hosting an after party event TAO nightclub.
