*Upon request, the Law School will submit applications to state bar associations for continuing legal education credits.  We estimate that this conference will be eligible for around 1035 minutes of general CLE credit and 120 minutes of Ethics credit.  However, because CLE approval is ultimately at the discretion of individual states, no advance assurance can be given that credit will be granted in all cases.

The course will be taught by an experienced group of practitioners, experts, former regulators, and law professors including James E. Scott, Karol K. Sparks, Edward J. McAniff, Julie L. Williams, Rosemarie Oda, Kathleen O'Day, Sara A. Kelsey, J. Virgil Mattingly, John A. Buchman, and Jeremy R. Newell.

A limited number of hotel rooms will be reserved at the Hotel Lombardy, adjacent to the Law School, at a discounted rate of $239/night.  Please mention "GW Law C-LEAF"  and group number "2849" when making your reservations.
