A Message From Judge Michael Pitman

Dear SBA members:

Judge Frances Pitman and I are planning the SBA’s CLE programs for 2016. We know that you have many choices when it comes to obtaining your CLE credit, but we ask that you please consider giving preference to the SBA’s CLE programs. The revenue from the seminars represents approximately 60% of the SBA’s annual budget. Good attendance at the seminars is essential.
We ask that you please calendar these dates that already have been scheduled for 2016:

- Recent Developments (13 hours): October 13 and 14, 2016
- December CLE by the hour (13 hours): December 13 and 14, 2016

Thank you for your support of the Shreveport Bar.
