Sharon D. StuartSharon D. Stuart and Jonathan M. Hooks attended the Defense Research Institute (DRI) annual meeting from October 22-26 in San Francisco, Calif. The annual meeting provides members with valuable opportunities to visit with clients, participate in first-rate continuing legal education (CLE) seminars on cutting-edge topics, and to see old friends and meet new ones. Stuart served as a mentor for four first-time attendees, and she and Hooks each attended panel counsel meetings of insurance carrier clients and practice-group business meetings.

Stuart, who serves as Vice Chair of State Liaisons for the Women in the Law leadership (WITL), participated in the group’s networking dinner, business and CLE meetings, and was a sponsor for the WITL photo booth at the conference – which was a big hit with attendees!

Hooks, Jonathan_Hooks attended the product liability and drug and medical device committee meetings, and in the evenings networked at the drug and medical device and professional liability practice group dinners. Likewise, Stuart, as a member of the Alabama Defense Lawyers Association’s Board of Directors, attended a southern State Leadership Defense Organization dinner.

“DRI’s annual meeting gives lawyers from around the country a chance to plug in and get involved in a fun and meaningful way,” Stuart said. “We had the opportunity to make several valuable connections, and it was an honor to represent Christian & Small in this capacity at the national level.”
