If you want or need high-quality appellate CLE, DRI has what you need—in Las Vegas. The DRI Appellate Advocacy Seminar will be held on March 14–15 at the Planet Hollywood Resort. It’s being held in conjunction with the DRI Trial Tactics Seminar, with a joint session being held on the afternoon of March 15. The faculty includes six appellate judges. Also on the lineup is Bryan Garner, who will talk about using canons of textualism to construct legal arguments. As a bonus, you can stick around on the morning of March 16 for additional CLE with the trial-tactics folks without any additional cost.
Oh, in case you’re board-certified in Louisiana as an appellate specialist, or if you intend to apply for that specialization this year, DRI has applied to the Louisiana Board of Legal Specialization for specialized CLE accreditation. From reading the brochure, it looks like it’ll be good for 9 hours of specialized CLE credit. (For specialists in other states, DRI has applied for specialized CLE accreditation to California, Florida, Ohio, and Texas.)
