Robert A. Clifford, founder and senior partner at Clifford Law Offices, will moderate a panel discussion at Law Bulletin Media’s 13th Annual Symposium with the Judges on November 30, 2022, from 1:15-2:00 pm at The Westin Chicago River North Hotel.
The 2022 symposium will provide sitting judges from Cook County a forum to share their experiences and advice with lawyers in the region.
