Boston has always been a city of innovation; we have been at the forefront of healthcare and education for decades, and today we’re leading the nation in the technology, life sciences, and venture capital sectors as well.

These constantly-evolving industries bring new legal issues and challenges. It’s essential that lawyers who practice in these fields stay connected with what’s happening on the front lines.

As the Hub of Boston Law, the Boston Bar Association is proud to present the first of many conferences during the 2016-2017 program year that will explore the interplay between these important sectors and the law.
