7.25 CLE credit, including 1 Professionalism hour and 2 Trial Practice hours


Have your neighbors and friends asked for legal advice on situations outside of your area of practice? All lawyers pass the same Bar and meet the same requirements, but that doesn’t mean all attorneys know the laws or practice in the same fields. This CLE is aimed at educating and exposing lawyers to other practice areas and answering common questions that lawyers are often asked. All attendees are invited to attend a complimentary Happy Hour hosted by Omni Healthcare and Peak Funding Group after the CLE event at the Publik Draft House.

Register by October 13, 2017, and receive a $25 discount!
