Important Notes

  • Due to a high demand for online participation in the Brown Bag presentations, we are modifying the presentation to be live audio and presentation materials only (no view of the presenter will appear). This will allow for transmission of the presentations to more individuals without exceeding our broadband capacity at the law school. We will continue to offer continuing legal educations credits for the programs for individuals participating in the live program. Questions may be asked of the presenters. An attendance code will be read in two parts during the presentation to be reported on the online attendance form. We thank you for your understanding.
  • Pre-registration is required for in-person attendees.
  • Registration links are provided below under the listing for each month's presentation.
