There Are Still Opportunities to Earn Free CLE Credits This Fall. Take Advantage While You Can!

10/07/2019 - Saw It On The Internet is a three-part series sponsored by the Volunteer Lawyer Program in conjunction with the Public Services Involvement Committee. Each session will feature a mock trial for the first hour after which the audience will have the opportunity to provide input about what they found effective and not so effective. In addition, the panel will explain why they approached the matter as they did. We are fortunate enough to have members of the bench preside over each day’s trial and they, too, will offer their insight into what works and doesn’t work.

This seminar is offered FREE OF CHARGE to all participants who agree to accept a pro bono case. Online registration is unavailable for this series; to register please contact Elisa King or John Ellis via email or telephone at (401) 421-7758.
