There may not be a bigger “industry” in law firm marketing and business development circles than the continued growth and proliferation of rankings and ratings. The impact on the profession is significant—from the time and money spent to the permissible uses for promotion. The Rules of Professional Conduct and ethics opinions have tried in vain to develop workable ethics barriers and parameters. Learn about ratings and their methodologies, and the ethical considerations voiced by various state and national bar associations. From long-time services by Martindale, American Lawyer Media, Best Lawyers and Super Lawyers; to relative newcomers such as Chambers USA and Avvo; and the thousands of other companies that have recognized there is a lot of money to be made in the business of lawyer rankings. Are they helping buyers of legal services make more informed decisions or hindering the profession as a whole? You decide.

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m.
