SABA’s highly acclaimed Criminal Law Institute is just around the corner on April 17-18, 2015. This Institute represents the 52nd anniversary of this CLE program, designed to provide judges and counsel with thorough, scholarly presentations on crucial criminal law issues of the day. Pre-register by April 13 to get a $50 discount!



Co-sponsored by the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyer’s Association and the San Antonio Defense Lawyers Association, this year’s Institute continues its long tradition of providing valuable information on topics of interest to both new and experienced lawyers and judges.  Dedicated to the “prime mover” who organized the first several seminars, the Institute was renamed the A.A. Semaan Criminal Law Institute in 1970, in honor of the late A.A. Semaan — lawyer, judge and legal scholar extraordinaire. This year’s seminar will be moderated by the Institute’s current longtime prime movers, John Convery, Robert Price and Mark Stevens.

This year, the Criminal Law Institute will take place at the lovely San Antonio Marriott Northwest (3233 NW Loop 410, 78213). Centrally located, the Marriott is nearby the San Antonio Medical Center and offers FREE parking.

The pre-registration deadline is April 13 at 5 p.m., at a cost of $225. Registration after April 13 through the day of the event is $275. The fee includes seminar materials and Friday lunch. New attorneys licensed after January 1, 2013 will receive a $50 discount off tuition. Federal, Appellate, State and County Court judges are entitled to attend this institute on a complimentary basis and will be provided with written materials “at cost” for $125. This privilege is not transferable. Register for the seminar online at

For out-of-towners, the San Antonio Marriott Northwest has agreed to offer rooms to Criminal Law Institute attendees at a special rate of $99/night.
