Appreciation is given to Guests of Honor Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Minnesota Lorie Skjerven Gildea and Chief U.S. District Judge Michael Davis for their cooperation in this event.

Judges, in upholding the rule of law, critically affect every area of American life including the economy, property rights, personal liberty, and democratic values. These Distinguished Speakers will analyze issues which are not only key for lawyers, but also important for business leaders and other citizens. These include key issues facing business; how companies and other groups can be effectively represented in court; and what resources are needed for efficient operation of the courts to enhance timeliness and reduce the cost of litigation for the parties. Specific topics to be discussed by the Distinguished Panelists include effective appellate strategies; intellectual property; e-discovery and other technology; and product liability.

A unique series of parallel events with Chief Justices and Chief Judges are being held in major cities nationwide. The transcript of this event will be made available electronically. The Directors Roundtable Institute is a not-for-profit which organizes worldwide programming for Directors and their advisors.
