FDAP Training Seminar - Saturday, January 26, 2008
November 19 , 2007

FDAP will be conducting a training seminar on Saturday, January 26, 2008, in the Court building in San Francisco. The Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC) has agreed to cover the cost, so the seminar is completely free for the panel. The syllabus appears below.

The one-day seminar will have 6 hours of MCLE credit, including 1 hour of ethics. The seminar will cover a wide variety of topics, which should be of interest to panel members of all levels of experience. Topics include current cases pending in the California and U.S. Supreme Court, winning trends in search and seizure cases, a panel discussion on practice differences in how attorneys handle (and differ in handling) client and practice situations, a talk by Clerk Administrator Fritz Ohlrich of the California Supreme Court, and much more.

Attendees will receive written materials and a catered lunch and snacks.

This seminar will be a good chance to greet and chat with other panel attorneys and the FDAP staff attorneys, while getting caught up on a variety of timely items relating to your appellate practice.

If you are interested in attending, send an email to FDAP's "general information" mailbox, and provide your first and last name and your state bar number, and we will register you.
