Legal Forum

The ninth annual Legal Forum gives law firms an opportunity to showcase their investment management expertise through 30-minute presentations, followed by 15 minutes of Q&A/networking with attendees of the 2017 General Membership Meeting (GMM), the Mutual Fund Compliance Programs Conference, the Operations and Technology Conference, and the Fund Directors Workshop. All four meetings will run concurrently at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, DC, from Wednesday, May 3, to Friday, May 5. The Legal Forum will take place in the Exhibit Hall. Presentation topics must be relevant to the investment management industry and must be approved by ICI’s GMM planning committee.
