How can PDI benefit law firm PD professionals?
Today’s law firm PD professionals have more varied responsibilities than ever before. The demands for increased professional development and training, combined with industry trends and fiscal realities, have added to the challenges faced by PD professionals.

How can PDI benefit law school career professionals?

Law school attendees will also find significant value in sharing best practices, new ideas, and hot topics with other law student PD professionals.
“The programming provided an inside look at the PD programs at law firms, and the law school member roundtable discussion was a great opportunity for sharing ideas with my peers.”
