That means we are having second one in calendar 2017. The event is Tuesday, November 14. Registration and details are available here . There will be two CLE panels including one featuring ethics credit. The first panel will discuss the status of NAFTA with perspectives from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

Please come out to support the program, get CLE credit, and hear from expert speakers.
