    The Appellate Lawyers Association
    Cordially Invites You to Attend Its
    December Luncheon Program

    Roundtable Luncheon with Justices of the
    Illinois Supreme Court

    This year marks the bicentennial of the Illinois judiciary—200 years since the first four justices of the Illinois Supreme Court were appointed in the then-state capital, Kaskaskia, Illinois. The Supreme Court has changed since 1818 in innumerable ways, but it continues to guide all of our state courts and our profession, and to serve the people of Illinois in the finest traditions of the law.

    Join us for an informal roundtable luncheon with our Supreme Court justices and speak with them directly about appellate practice and the role of the judiciary. This is a rare opportunity and should not be missed.

    Date:  Thursday, December 6, 2018

    Time:  12:00 to 1:30 p.m.

    MCLE:  Participants will earn one hour of MCLE credit. The ALA is an approved MCLE provider.

    Location:  Union League Club of Chicago, 65 West Jackson Boulevard, Chicago, Illinois. Please note the Union League Club enforces a dress code, which can be accessed here.

    As part of our continuing efforts to bring premium programming to our members, the Appellate Lawyers Association is pleased to announce and offer an informative and engaging CLE program featuring Dean Erwin Chemerinsky, which was recorded at a CLE luncheon at The Standard Club in Chicago on April 21, 2017.

    Dean Chemerinsky is an expert on constitutional law, federal practice, civil rights, civil liberties, and appellate litigation. He is the author of ten books and more than 200 law review articles. He frequently argues appellate cases, including in the U.S. Supreme Court.

    For only $25, you can view the program on any device with Internet access (including a computer, smart phone, tablet, or TV) anywhere in the world, at your convenience. And you will receive one hour of CLE credit.

    (*In May 2017, Dean Chemerinsky was named Dean of the University of California Berkeley School of Law and will assume that position in July 2017.)
