Testimonials and Speaking Engagements

“Layne is simply fantastic in front of her fellow lawyers– even those in the middle of a grueling travel schedule.  As a programmer and as an attendee, I found her presentation to be informative, engaging, and entertaining (a rare combination in the CLE business!).  That she is repeatedly asked to return to UMKC’s seminars is no accident; she is one of the most popular speakers on our overseas programs, and makes sure that her subject matter is never stale.  She has my wholehearted endorsement as a speaker who breathes life into CLE.” Aaron Lukken, UMKC CLE Programs
“Thank you, Layne, for coming to London and talking to us at the British Literary and Artistic Copyright Association. Your enthusiasm and passion for your subject was contagious, as the very lively debate with the audience demonstrated. I hope that you will visit London again before long and bring with you further news from the world of fashion and IP.”   Brigitte Lindner, Registered European Lawyer and Member of BLACA (British Literary and Artistic Copyright Association)
“Thank you, Layne!  You gave a wonderful presentation…members of the group were still talking about it days later.” Daniel J. McCarroll, Director, Continuing Legal Education, UMKC School of Law

  1. Hi Layne,
    Where in Rome and at what time will this UPCOMING SPEAKING ENGAGEMENT: “IP LICENSING AND FRANCHISING” July 2, 2012, Rome Italy, take place? I’m a IP In-House Lawyer student from the CEIPI in Strasbourg, France. I would love to come. May I?
