The one-day seminar will have 6 hours of MCLE credit, including 1 hour of ethics (and 6 hours of criminal and appellate specialization). As usual, we will provide snacks and a hot catered lunch.

As always, the seminar is a great way to keep up with hot topics and current issues in the law, and to meet and greet so many good people doing such good work.

We look forward to seeing you on January 21.
