It's not just a blog carnival; it's the law! ~ a fool in the forest


InsideCounsel magazine comes to life in hometown Chicago through more than 20 highly interactive sessions providing the corporate legal community with insights and ideas from some of the sharpest minds in law coming together for the 10th Annual SuperConference, from May 25-26, 2010.

Featuring experts from across the legal industry, including top general counsel, leading law firms, government and regulatory leaders, program highlights include:
The role of the general counsel as counselor

Fighting back against IP theft

Innovative ways to defeat plaintiffs’ damages

Demonstrating your law department’s value

Getting the alternative fee arrangement that’s right

White collar criminal investigations and prosecution
Wait, what was that last one? Who's gonna sugar-coat that? Uh, oh! This is for real. Scott Greenfield will be there with an old briefcase full of stories from the trenches to deliver a "wake-up call" for corporate counsel and to dispel "the myth of white collar crime." Seriously, it doesn't get more real than this.

In conjunction with the 10th Annual SuperConference, InsideCounsel's First Annual Transformative Leadership Awards will be presented at a gala dinner on May 24, 2010 at The Fairmont Chicago. The Awards honor women general counsel and law firm partners who have demonstrated a commitment to advancing the empowerment of women in corporate law.

For the evening of the 25th we'll organize a night out on the town for everyone at the conference who wants to meet the bloggers, including our many friends and Blawg Review hosts there in Chicago. Follow us on Twitter @blawgreview and @InsideCounsel at the SuperConference to see when and where we're getting together that Tuesday night.

Lookin' forward to seeing you again this year in Chicago.

Go Cubs! Go Blackhawks!

Meet the Bloggers in Chicago at Inside Counsel's SuperConference at the Fairmont Chicago Aria Bar on Tuesday May 25th from 6 p.m. for as long as we want to enjoy the amenities.

A good crowd is expected including these visitors to Chicago for the SuperConference:


and many Chicago bloggers who have indicated they will join us there, including:


Please let us know if you're planning to join us for this meetup so we can add you to this list and look for you there. Hopefully, some of the general counsel attending Inside Counsel's SuperConference will stop by and meet the law bloggers gathering in the Aria Bar off the Fairmont Hotel lobby. It's a fun group of legal professionals, and very interesting, too. Everyone attending the conference is encouraged to join in this informal get-together with the bloggers.

Thanks to @InsideCounsel and @FairmontChicago for the hospitality and to conference organizer @sheilabrennan for extending the warm welcome to local law bloggers and those visiting Chicago for the SuperConference.
