There will be four panel discussions throughout the day.  There is no fee for the conference but advance registration is strongly encouraged.  Registration is available online, here.  CLE credit is available for a fee of $45.00 (6 hours total, including 1 Professionalism, 1 Ethics and 3.0 Trial Practice credits).
