The 34th annual General Practice Institute will be hosted by Baylor Law School on Friday, April 29, beginning at 9 a.m. and ending at 4:30 p.m. Co-sponsored by the Waco-McLennan County Bar Association and the State Bar of Texas General Practice, Solo and Small Firm Section, the CLE seminar will take place in room 127 at the law school.
The seminar is designed to provide important aid for lawyers who practice in solo or small firms.
Ã¢The law is constantly changing and developing and lawyers need to be updated on the law,Ã¢ said Mike Rogers, professor of law and program director.
The topics and speakers are chosen specifically to serve these general practitioners.
This year Thelma Clardy, chair of the State Bar of Texas Council of the General Practice, Solo and Small Firm Section, will serve as the seminarÃ¢s moderator.
Topics will include family law, federal estate and gift tax, ethics, business and estate planning lessons from litigation and criminal law.
The preregistration fee is $110 and door registration is $125.
The law school expects about 75 lawyers to attend and about the same number to watch the recorded video from the seminar at OnlineCLE.com.
