Why you should attend
PLI’s Illinois MCLE Marathon is specifically designed to help you meet your Illinois MCLE requirements, as well as learn about best practices and new and emerging issues. If your last name begins with letters A-M and you were admitted to the Illinois bar before July 1, 2009, your MCLE compliance deadline of June 30, 2012 is fast approaching. For this A-M reporting period, attorneys need 30 hours of MCLE credit, including at least six hours approved for professional responsibility.
If your last name begins with letters N-Z and you were admitted to the Illinois bar before July 1, 2010, you can get a “head-start” on your MCLE credits for your next compliance reporting deadline of June 30, 2013.
Led by a faculty of outstanding Illinois lawyers, PLI’s Illinois MCLE Marathon will provide you four MCLE credit hours in professionalism and legal ethics and two additional general MCLE credits.
What you will learn
At this lively and informative program, an expert faculty will discuss and analyze on-going concerns, new developments, and emerging issues in:
• Professionalism and Legal Ethics: the new Illinois Rules of Professional conduct, emerging ethical issues for inside counsel, the intersection of disciplinary violations and civil liability, attorney-client privilege and criminal investigations
• General Practice: how to best manage discovery, as seen from the bench; business and commercial Supreme Court decisions with implications for your business clients
Who should attend
All litigators and transactional attorneys who need to fulfill their Illinois Minimum Continuing Education Requirements.
