What is the Unprogram?

The UnProgram is a one-of-a-kind program. The Unprogram is a forum for attorneys to talk about what is important to them – with their peers. There are no lectures or teachers, only experienced facilitators. Participants establish the agenda, establishing an innovative design to promote discussions that lead to learning through idea-sharing and collaboration. Attendees will gain real-life examples of how others have mastered difficult situations. Participants determine the UnProgram content.

The UnProgram takes place in small groups, where some participants act as “facilitators” to lead discussions on any variety of elder law and special needs planning topics. Participants gather in the facilitator’s room for an open discussion. Several topics/rooms are offered in each hour-long session. Dress comfortably, it is highly likely you will be sitting on the floor!

The Unprogram is an opportunity to introduce yourself to new subjects that help expand your practical knowledge. It is also an opportunity to increase your technical knowledge with other topics you are more experienced in.

Finally, the Unprogram is your chance to pick the brains of your colleagues who are facing the same challenges you are!
