Last names H-M: fulfill your MCLE requirement at the Annual Meeting

The State Bar will return to Monterey at the end of the month for its 2008 Annual Meeting, where members of MCLE compliance group 2 (last names begin with H-M) can fulfill their entire requirement. From Sept. 25-28, attendees at the 81st annual meeting can take advantage of a wide range of educational programs, including MCLE credit in all of the subfields, as well as legal specialization credit. Courses focus on four areas: practice skills, substantive law, solo practice and technology. In addition, the meeting will have a particular focus on green initiatives.

A new State Bar president and five new members of the board of governors will take office, the Conference of Delegates of California Bar Associations will hold its yearly confab, artists can exhibit their work and luncheons will feature a variety of prominent speakers. Among those slated to speak are former Senate majority leader Tom Daschle, marine scientist Dr. Sylvia Earle and former U.S. Solicitor General and current law professor Drew S. Days III. Chief Justice Ronald George will keynote the California Women Lawyers 34th annual dinner and also will present his State of the Judiciary address.

Internet kiosks will be located throughout the meeting, enabling participants to check e-mail and keep up with the demands of their practices. The bar’s Lawyer Assistance Program will offer a complimentary self-study audio CD that will allow listeners to earn one our of MCLE credit in prevention and detection of substance abuse.
