Board Certification Bootcamp — Two Hour Webcast

In lieu of the Section's February Telephonic CLE, the Section is offering a 2017 update to last year's appellate certification review course via a two-hour audio webcast on this coming Tuesday, February 21, 2017 from 12:00pm to 2:00pm. This Board Certification Bootcamp course will be taught by Celene Humphries and Hala Sandridge, and will cover a range of updates that may appear on the certification exam, including criminal appeals and new local federal appellate rules. Unlike the usual monthly CLE, which is over the phone, this CLE is only accessible via the internet through your computer.

For this CLE program only, we have special registration procedures that everyone must use, including those who have already purchased February's seminar either individually or in bulk at the beginning of the 2016-17 season. These procedures are:

Course No. 2385R
General CLE Credit: 2 hours
Appellate Practice Credit: 2 hour
