Facility Description

This conference is one of the best values in continuing education. The tuition is among the lowest of CLE and CE programs in the field of labor and employment law. Chicago is also reasonably-priced for airfares, with many choices of airlines and flight times into O’Hare and Midway. The group rate at the Fairmont is a very good value, not just for Chicago and other hotels in the top tier, but also in comparison to other major U.S. cities.
