2015 WDALA Fall Seminar
|Date:||September 22-23, 2015||CLE Credits: 9.0|
|Location:||Seven Seas/Baymont Inn Mandan, North Dakota.|
As professionals working in the legal field we're constantly being barraged with growing and more complex law. WDALA's 2015 Fall Seminar combined the talents of a variety of speakers on different topics in order to discuss what is new, what is working, what is not and what is next.
WDALA's seminars include CLE credit. Even if you have not earned the certified credential, our seminars ensure that attendees remain competent and current with the law. The CLEs featured topics including e-filing (both at the State and Federal level), Supreme Court rules, legal research and writing, child support, and estate planning. The annual meeting during lunch on Wednesday discussed WDALA business and elected new officers.
As usual, this seminar was a place to connect—finding peers, meeting new friends, brainstorming ideas and building relationships with others who work in the legal field are all important parts of attending WDALA's seminars.
