    This is a must-attend event for newer attorneys, who will learn the practical information needed to practice civil defense law.  Sessions are taught by experienced members of the civil defense bar and the judiciary.

    The registration fee is $300 and includes all CLEs, lunch, and networking reception and golfing fun.
