2018 is a key year in New Jersey with the election of a new governor and changes in the legislature's leadership.

Membership is corporate so your employees will thank you for this networking and information resource they can utilize in 2018.

Register today for Law Day 2018. The special promo code to receive the $150 discount will be given to all non-members at the event.
