Upcoming Events & CLE Opportunities!

As always, the San Antonio Bar Association’s ongoing continuing legal education series offers cutting-edge CLE programs designed to enhance the practicing Bar’s professional skills.  All CLE courses are aimed at satisfying the current and endlessly challenging information and training needs of today’s Bar, and are part of an educational continuum which begins in law school and continues throughout a lawyer’s professional career.  Stay tuned for upcoming CLE opportunities on our website www.sabar.org and in future issues of the Subpoena!

There are many SABA sections and local Bars that hold monthly luncheons with up to an hour of CLE credit, often for little more than the cost of your lunch!  Check out the Subpoena calendar for this month's luncheons!

Got Ethics?  2013 Ethics Follies Video Presentation, Apr. 30

Ethics Follies uses music and comedy, performed by local attorneys, physicians, judges and actors to raise awareness of the business and legal ethics issues, and it’s now available to view monthly at the San Antonio Bar Association! If you missed the live performance in November, this is your opportunity to see Ethics Follies: Age of Rock on DVD! The video is shown on the 5th floor of the Bexar County Courthouse on the last Wednesday of every month. The morning video presentation will begin promptly at 9 a.m. and the afternoon vi
deo begins at 2 p.m.

Take a rock n’ roll journey and discover a more ethical organization along the way with ACC’s 16th Annual Ethics Conference, “Age of Rock!” The two-hour ethics conference explores ways to increase ethical awareness through fast-paced parodies in the award-winning Ethics Follies musical comedy format, featuring the Court Jesters attorney band and parodies of songs by Journey, Pat Benatar, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake, Heart and many more. While the show covers serious ethics and compliance issues in an enjoyable way, it also reminds us about the positive financial impact of “doing the right thing.” All businesses and law firms will benefit from the ethics issues raised.

The South/Ce
ntral Texas Chapter of The Association of Corporate Counsel has hosted the ethics conference for 16 years in San Antonio. A substantial portion of the registration proceeds are donated to the Community Justice Program. Ethics Follies provides over half the CJP’s annual operating budget each year.

Registration is $60 to SABA and ACC members and $100 to nonmembers.  Attendees will receive 2.0 hours of the most enjoyable, entertaining ethics CLE credit available! RSVPs to lizc@sabar.org are appreciated, but walk-ins are always welcome.

Fresh CLE lineup in the works for 2014

The San Antonio Bar Association is excited to announce its 2014 Brown Bag Lunch Series: “The SABA Sampler: Everything You Wanted to Know About...” which will focus on a different area of law each month. The series kicks off in March with a new seminar hosted by, and covering topics relevant to, a different Section of the San Antonio Bar:

Alternative Dispute Resolution Section
Appellate Practice
Construction Law
Consumer & Commercial Law Section
Elder Law Section
Environmental Law Section
Family Law Section
Immigration & Nationality Law Section
International Law Section
Litigation Law Section
Natural Resources Section
Real Estate Section

The seminars, which will be held on the third Thursday of every month and will offer at least 1.0 hour of CLE credit, will be offered FREE to current members of the San Antonio Bar Association. You heard that right — that’s a minimum of 12 hours of FREE participatory CLE credit toward fulfilling your annual State Bar requirements!  Just for being a member of the San Antonio Bar Association!

Seminars will typically be held in the courtroom of that month’s presiding judge. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunch. If you don’t want to brown bag it, there are plenty of to-go options in and around the Courthouse.

Stay tuned for more details on these valuable CLE opportunities on the San Antonio Bar Association website and in future SABA Happenings email blasts!
