LGA Celebrates Our 45th Anniversary

LGA will host a virtual conference Thursday and Friday, October 15 and 16. Registration is open!. We are offering our usual 9.5 hours of CLE, including two hours of Ethics. With two Zoom experiences under our belt, we have developed ways to make this conference a more LGA-like experience. There will be fun breaks between sessions, interactive sessions for practice groups, opportunities to win prizes, a virtual awards ceremony, a Zoom happy hour, and enhanced recognition of our stalwart sponsors.
