The daylong conference is being held in room 3037; registration begins at 9:30 in the third-floor loggia.

A series of panel discussions will focus on such issues as workplace communication, career transitions and alternative career paths, and issues relating to work-life balance and facilitating personal and professional happiness. Panelists include academics and practitioners in a range of fields, from private practice to government service, and include a number of distinguished Duke Law alumni and faculty.

Chief Justice Christine Durham of the Utah Supreme Court, a 1971 Duke Law graduate and emeritus member of the Duke University Board of Trustees, will deliver the keynote address at 11:15 a.m.

The conference concludes with a networking reception on the third-floor mezzanine, co-sponsored by a number of student organizations. It is open to all members of the Duke Law community.
