Our office holds at least one general practice seminar each year.  Our seminars include guest speakers.  The goals of our seminars are to give our attorneys and panel attorneys an update on the current law, to give practical tips on the current practice in the district, to provide a forum where panel attorneys can network, and to answer questions from attorneys. Seating at our seminars is limited, therefore those who would like to attend must inform April Bunn promptly after receiving information on the seminar. Once our seating capacity is reached, individuals will be placed on the wait list and will be notified once seats become available. For more information, please email April Bunn.
