Join Us In Chicago!

In 2015 the Global Legal Skills Conference returns to where it began — the vivacious city of Chicago.  The GLS Conference has been held around the world — in Chicago, Washington D.C., Mexico, Costa Rica, and Italy.  2015 will mark the tenth time that the conference has brought together educators and practitioners from around the globe.

The 2015 conference is jointly sponsored by The John Marshall Law School, Northwestern University School of Law, and the Facultad Libre de Derecho de Monterrey (Mexico).

The GLS-10 conference will be held on Wednesday, May 20, 2015, and Thursday, May 21, 2015, at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago.  On Friday  May 22, 2015 the conference will move slightly north to Northwestern University School of Law.  Optional excursions in Chicago will be offered before and after the conference (or plan your own adventure . . . we’ll help you with ideas!)
