LabCon (previously known as TBD Law) is nothing like your typical legal conference (so suspend visions of sitting in the same chair for hours at a time taking notes just to stay awake- that’s not our style.)
Who should attend: This event is invite-only because we’re serious about hands-on growth with the right people in attendance.
Think of LabCon like being in a room with a group of laser-focused, future-thinking small firm lawyers just like you mixed with workshops led by experts. You’ll leave the event with actionable steps for your firm and the roadmap for preparing your practice for the next ten years.
Lawyerist LabCon is a unique mix of conference, summit, retreat, design-thinking workshop, and hackathon. We have replaced the speakers you would usually find on a conference agenda with facilitated and interactive conversations, workshops, and activities.

Invitation Only, Inclusive by Design
Join other ahead-of-the-curve lawyers to help reimagine the practice of law, revisit and update your strategies for how you work with clients, and get inspired from the mastermind-style conversations with your peers. Isn’t it time we prove that innovative lawyer isn’t an oxymoron?
Here’s what Lawyerist LabCon is NOT:
- A CLE
- Open to anyone who wants to attend (this is an invite-only event!)
- An opportunity to get out of your office and mentally check out (Sorry, there’s a lot of work and strategy involved, but we do mix it up with fun events!)
- One of those “back of the room” conferences or speaking events where you’re being pressured to buy stuff or services you don’t want or need.
Attendance is capped at 75- we want everyone to have their voice heard and for them to get the help they need in their firm. If you’re in Lawyerist Lab or have attended past events, we’d like to see you there! Curious about joining Lab? You can set up a call to review that option here.
Restricting attendance also lets us emphasize diversity by curating who is in the room. We take it as a given that innovative lawyers come in all genders, colors, sexual orientations, and abilities.

By Innovators, for Innovators
Leave the status quo back home. At Lawyerist LabCon you will focus on building the future of your practice with lawyers who will push you to engage with ideas outside your comfort zone and form goals you can take home.
What Prior Event Attendees Are Saying
I had no idea what to expect, but I figured it would be pretty amazing. It was. This is THE BEST law conference I’ve ever been to!
Go! Make time in your schedule, make space in your budget, and go! These were the two most valuable days of my professional life as a solo, and I will continue to reap the benefits of these two days for years to come.
This is like no other conference. If you are serious about legal innovation, rethinking traditional law practice, and self-evaluation, do whatever it takes to clear your schedule and attend. The experience requires you to think outside of the box and challenges the barriers that we often build to limit our law practices. It provides the opportunity to collaborate with like-minded colleagues from across the globe and the best part is it does not end after the conference is over.
Outstanding! A chance to join a think tank of the brightest and best lawyers. So here is the thing: I’m really an introvert in big groups, yet I found myself making friends, talking to anyone and everyone and finding a free exchange of everyone’s best ideas. After the conference, that culture has continued in full force.
It was unlike any conference I have attended. I left having met wonderful contacts and energized and inspired about my practice.
[I]t was about as far from traditional legal conferences and CLE sessions as you can get.
