2020 PDC Winter Meeting

The PDC has made the tough decision and one we think is best for our organization and will not be hosting our 2020 Winter Meeting this year. NALP and ALI CLE, in collaboration with the PDC, are pleased to present the 2020 NALP PDI Virtual Conference on December 3-4. You won't want to miss two engaging plenaries and 24 concurrent educational sessions, all on topics of great interest to lawyer and law student PD professionals. All programming will be available to attendees for 30 days after the dates of the event, meaning you can watch all 26 sessions at your convenience. The conference will also offer a Management Foundations Course for newer PD professionals on Wednesday, December 2. For more information, please read this article by PDC Trusted Advisor and presenter Molly Peckman.

We are pleased to recognize our PDC Members and Trusted Advisors who will be speaking at PDI and encourage members to attend. Please keep an eye out for our event coming in early 2021 to present the Richard Pearson Award. 

All times are listed in Eastern Time.
