FDAP Training Seminar - Friday, January 20, 2012
[posted September 27, 2011]

[updated Dec. 5, 2011 to add syllabus]

[updated Jan. 17, 2012:

Registration is Now Closed

FDAP's 2012 annual training seminar will be held on Friday, January 20, 2012, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., in the conference center at the Courthouse in San Francisco. Please save the date! The cost is only $45 for 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.

This year we will be making the written seminar materials available in both electronic/download and print formats. The electronic materials will be made available for downloading at no cost no less than four days prior to the seminar. Hardcopy versions of the materials are available for $15. (Thus, $60 for the seminar and hardcopy materials.) When registering for the seminar, be sure to select whether you want electronic-only materials or print. If you choose electronic-only, the materials will be available to you for free download approximately four days prior to the seminar. (There is no CD; you will receive an email with a link when the materials are ready to download.) If you choose the hardcopy option, you will receive the printed materials when you arrive at the seminar.

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 20.

The syllabus is now available for the January 20, 2012, training.


Registration is closed. (1/17/2012)


Note: event is on a Friday: The Courthouse is not available to us on a Saturday, so the seminar is on a Friday.
