We Teach What We Practice

We Teach What We Practice

Albo & Oblon lawyers regularly teach our practice areas to other lawyers (and judges) at leading Continuing Legal Education programs. While we do this as a service to our profession, teaching benefits us (and our clients) by keeping us sharp and “up to date.” Here are some of the programs at which we’ve lectured:
