Staying Grounded in a Fluid World

The 2020s have ushered in a lot of change so far, but one thing hasn’t changed: the State Bar of Wisconsin’s commitment to meeting the needs of Wisconsin practitioners for continuing education in the information age.

The 2021 Annual Meeting & Conference will take place virtually, and everything you need will be online, in one convenient place. Log on, and you’ll be able to attend CLE and earn credits, visit exhibitor booths, chat with speakers, participate in fun challenges for a chance to win prizes, and catch up with colleagues all within the conference’s intuitive, easy-to-navigate platform. It’s the first virtual AMC, and we’d love to see you online in June!
