Midwest Construction Defect & Dispute Conference

4th Annual Midwest CDDC | May 20, 2019

Chicago, IL | Loyola University Chicago School of Law

When you need CLE/CE think of the CDDC! Our courses aren’t just a great way to get those credits out of the way, but our courses are also entertaining, beneficial, and a great place to network with your colleagues and experts from around the country!

Our focus is bringing a national conference to a local region allowing you to get top level information, but eliminate the travel, the costs and problems of going to a large national conference. A smaller forum with experts in the construction defect and insurance dispute fields allows for a more comfortable setting to discuss these matters with your peers in a way that you normally would not be able to do across the aisle or table. The networking opportunities with people in your industry and related fields will be invaluable as you learn and progress throughout your career.

If you choose to travel you can see the value in coming to our conferences and the information can be applied to cases all over the country. The networking will be of importance and could be a key in one of your future cases.
