We are aiming even higher this year with more exhibits and an additional track for exhibitors to demonstrate products and answer questions. Don't miss the great speakers who will cover technology and practice management topics, such as e-discovery, iPads, fees, cloud computing, staffing issues and everyone’s favorite: 60 Tips.

Valuable resource of the week
Pattern Jury Instructions for Federal Criminal Cases District of South Carolina
The Fourth Circuit does not have pattern jury instructions formulated by committees of judges and practitioners and approved by the circuit for use in criminal cases. The purpose of this work is to fill that void by publishing pattern instructions annotated primarily by reference to Fourth Circuit and Supreme Court cases. This incredible resource contains more than 740 pages of substantive text and instructions and is organized in six sections to reflect the order in which jury instructions are generally given.
