CLOC will formally recognize three law firms as "2020 LIO Leaders' during CLOC's 2020 Vegas Institute in May.
"Our Law Firm Community discussions are filled with examples of law firms worldwide continually investing in innovative ideas that advance their practices to serve their clients," said Mary O'Carroll, President of CLOC.

Law firms are invited to submit details of their innovation to CLOC by March 27, 2020. Members of CLOC's Leadership Team will review all submissions and select three law firms as 2020 LIO Leaders, with each firm being invited to present a TED-style talk and participate in a moderated group discussion during a Showcase Session on the main stage during the 2020 Vegas Institute in May.
