  • How to increase practical learning opportunities in law schools;
  • How the future trends in law firm salary structures and law school tuition rates are connected; and
  • How firms can encourage client interaction during summer internships.

Speakers include Beth Keasler, Director of Entry-Level Recruiting and Development at Womble Carlyle; Edward Winslow III, Managing Partner at Brooks Pierce; Rose Kenyon, Strategic Planning and Emerging Trends Chairman for the North Carolina Bar Association; Professor Steve Virgil, Director of the Community Law and Business Clinic; and Professor Harold Lloyd, former General Counsel for The Fresh Market Inc.
