2015 Selected Topics and Miscellany CLE

About the CLE

Washburn University School of Law presents its annual two-day line-up of programs that focus on selected legal topics and updates in many areas of the law. The presenters, Washburn Law regular faculty members, adjunct professors, and other legal professionals, will share the insight and knowledge of their particular area of expertise. The sessions will include a presentation on the specific topic, generally including a review of updated cases and issues, and allow time for attendees to ask questions.

The CLE will be held Thursday, June 25, and Friday, June 26, 2015. You may attend either single day or both days.
