FDAP Training Seminar - Saturday, January 30, 2010
October 9, 2009

FDAP will be conducting a training seminar on Saturday, January 30, 2010, in the Court building in San Francisco. The syllabus appears below and is also available in PDF.

The one-day seminar will have 6 hours of MCLE credit, including 1 hour of ethics. FDAP has a pending application with the State Bar to provide specialization credit for this seminar. If the application is approved, the seminar would provide 6 hours of credit for Appellate specialization and 6 hours of credit for Criminal specialization. Note that FDAP takes no position regarding legal specialization. The fact that an attorney is, or is not, a certified specialist is not a factor that FDAP considers in assigning cases to panel attorneys. We are providing specialization credit (if the pending application is approved) as a courtesy to panel attorneys who are in the specialization programs. We will notify you if and when our application is approved. The pending application for specialization credit does not affect the 6 hours of MCLE which the seminar provides for all attorneys.


Update: To register, simply send a check to Liz Wilkie, First District Appellate Project, 730 Harrison St., San Francisco, CA 94107. If you send the check by November 30, the cost is just $35. If you register December 1, or later, the cost is $50. (Online registration is not available.)
