Objection! An Interactive Education Experience on Diversity & Bias Issues in the Legal Profession
NOTICE: REGISTRATION FOR THIS PROGRAM IS CLOSED.
One of the goals of this CLE is to afford participants an opportunity to engage in meaningful breakout room discussions. To do so, we need to limit the number of participants per breakout room. Due to the current number of registrants, PLAN has decided to close registration for this event. We will re-offer this training in spring 2023. Preference will be given to first time registrants for this CLE.
Thank you for your understanding.
