University of Chicago Gleacher Center

Why you should attend

Outsourcing transactions are again on the rise as the global economy recovers from its prolonged recession. Today’s sourcing deals, however, have become even more complex and mission-critical, and the law has grown deeper, broader and more burdensome. The legal documents are essential to the success of an outsourcing arrangement, and lawyers can create or lose a great deal of value for their clients in advising on these deals. Accordingly, any lawyer working in this field needs to understand the latest ideas on how sourcing transactions should be structured, negotiated and governed. This is without question the most rigorous and best outsourcing program available for lawyers.
