Many of us lawyers have been involved in technology and other cutting edge work to advance the practice of law and create better outcomes for our clients. Technology, self-help, unbundling, social media and other topics have been on our radar screens for a while. So, yesterday, I signed up to attend an upcoming CLE program that I believe will be extremely useful as the practice of law continues to change and as we ourselves change it.
The Chief Justice’s Commission on Professionalism is hosting a Convocation on Professionalism scheduled for Tuesday, November 30, 2010, starting at 8:00 a.m. in three locations: the State Bar of Georgia Conference Center in Atlanta (live) and by video-conference to Tifton and Savannah.
Here are some of the CLE sessions:
- Law Practice Today and Tomorrow: Realities, Challenges and Opportunities, moderated by the Hon. Robert Benham, Justice of the Supreme Court of Georgia
- Generations of Lawyers: New Opportunities for Practice and Mentoring
- Technology: How Can We Use It To Practice Law?
The CLE program provides six (6) CLE credits, including 1 each in Ethics and Professionalism.
The Convocation includes a special tribute luncheon in honor of Commission Founder Justice Harold Clarke (Retired).
I hope you can join me for the CLE program. Please share this with your colleagues.
