I am pleased to announce that the 2017 MDLA Trial Techniques Seminar will be held in Duluth August 17-19! The speakers at this seminar are sure to attract trial lawyers from across the state. Additionally, the social events associated with the meeting will also be top notch, including a welcoming reception on Thursday evening, the presentation of the annual MDLA Awards during lunch on Friday, and a party at Duluth Aquarium on Friday evening. We hope that you will take advantage of this unique opportunity to interact with our faculty and members by sponsoring the event.

– Jessica Schwie, MDLA Vice President
