Law Conference

We hold an annual law conference every year.  The conference is geared primarily to teachers and service providers, but everyone is welcome. As a result of COVID-19, this year’s conference will again be a virtual conference.  The theme this year is Family Law.  Instead of an in-person conference, we will have four webinars.  You may register for all the sessions or for whichever sessions are of interest to you.
