SMB and Women's Bar Association of Illinois Host Third Women's Business Development CLESwanson, Martin & Bell, LLP and the Women's Bar Association of Illinois have joined together once again for the CLE presentation, "How to Get the Business: A Continued Conversation with Givers and Getters," on Thursday, January 31.
