On March 24, 2017, LLOPS is putting on our annual Professional Development Conference. This year’s conference will explore themes of effective communication from the unique perspectives of a new librarian who presents data to the masses, legal educators who collaborate with legal professionals in Afghanistan, and an expert on human-computer interaction and design.
The conference will be held from 12:30 to 5:00 at Foster Pepper, PLLC. There will be a refreshment hour from 5:00 to 6:00.
More information about the conference can be found in the LLOPS PDC 2017 Flyer.
