Upcoming Seminar Presentations by Ellen Freedman

I am often asked how to find out when and where I will be presenting a seminar.  And I repeatedly promise to blog about my upcoming presentations.  But usually I am too busy actually doing the presentations to take the time to write about them beforehand.  I know, do as I say and not as I do!

August, September and October are going to be busy MCLE months.  I will be on the road presenting in many venues.  Most of the courses qualify for ethics credit.  For additional information or to register, contact the county bar association which is sponsoring my seminar(s).
