What is ``LITE`` /

LITE is a free “open mic” TED type “speed networking experience” that motivates, invigorates and promotes minority and women legal professionals as positive legal “thought leaders” who take their “law talk” to the community with awesome networking and engagement aired only on LITE consists of entertaining yet thought provoking 20 minute substantive legal commentary (called “The Analysis”) on issues that impact individuals, their businesses and communities as well as the interest of corporate, government and non-profit entities. After each Analysis, for 5 minutes, the audience is asked to share with 2 people seated next to them what they learned and then move to another seat before the next talk. LITE promises to create a new “experience” for anyone impacted by the legal system, while changing the image of the legal system.

LITE is a non-partisian event, so all legal thought leadership is welcome no matter how heated the legal discourse may get.  We promise a lively discussion from diverse lawyers on every side of any legal fence. LITE will feature speakers on both sides of a legal issue.
