MS Volunteer Lawyers Project Probono Week CLE
Tuesday, October 27, 2009
- Organization: MVLP
The Mississippi Volunteer Lawyers Project will also host a CLE during National Pro Bono Week as a way of encouraging volunteer lawyers to assist with mediating pro bono cases. To help prepare attorneys interested in handling family law cases and/or mediating contested cases, MVLP will be hosting a power-packed CLE on Friday, October 30, 2009 from 9:00 - noon entitled "Nuts & Bolts of Family Law and Mediation". The speakers for this seminar will be Patricia Herlihy, Esq. and Thomas W. Crockett, Esq. of Watkins Ludlam Winter & Stennis - experts in the area of family law. There is no cost to lawyers who agree to take at least one case through MVLP, and the fee for everyone else interested in attending will be only $50 to cover supplies and materials. This seminar has been approved for 3.0 hours of CLE by the Mississippi Commission on Continuing Legal Education. Because the seminar will be held at MVLP offices located at 921 President Street in Jackson, spaces are limited. Please r.s.v.p. to La'Verne Edney, General Counsel, at LEdney@mymvlp.net or by calling 601.360.0212 for more information.
