Is free parking available for attendees coming from off-campus??
Yes, however you must pre-resister at least 24 hours in advance to take advantage of this. For those who preregister 24 hours in advance, parking is available on a first come, first served basis in the Eckstein Hall Underground Parking Structure. There are two entrances: (1) 11th Street, between Wisconsin and Clybourn and (2) Clybourn Street - turn west (right) from 11th and enter the first driveway, which looks like a loading dock. We recommend you try the 11th Street entrance first. Enter the lot, pull a ticket, and find an open parking space. Once parked, follow signs to the elevator. Take the elevator to the main floor which opens to the foyer and go to the Welcome Desk to get your parking ticket validated so that you will not have to pay for parking when exiting. If the lots are full, please find street parking or proceed to the Wells Street Structure, Wells Street between 12th and 13th streets (cost of $5).
If I cannot attend on the date of the presentation, will it be archived on the web?
The presentation will be archived on the website. CLE credit cannot be given to those who attend after the end of the live presentatoin.
Do I need to pre-register?
Yes--this is vital so that we can communicate important event details to you and contact any online participants in the case of technical difficulties during the presentation. A registration link is available on the Brown Bag main page.
If I attend online, how do I get CLE (attorneys) or pro bono (law students) credit?
The Law School will apply for 1.0 CLE credit for this presentation and law students may count the time toward their Pro Bono Society hours. CLE and pro bono credit can only be given to in-person attendees and online attendees who view the live version of the presentation. To obtain credit, you must fill out the Online Attendance Form within 30 minutes of the presentation. (Those attending in person will fill out a paper attendance sheet to obtain credit.) Law student attendees will be responsible for logging the hour in their pro bono account.
How do I view handouts if I attend online?
Go to the Brown Bag website and you access them before the presentation begins
How do I ask a question if I attend online?
You may ask questions during the presentation by clicking on the icon that looks like a speech bubble. Please enter your email in order for us to be able to respond to you with any follow-up or clarifying questions.
