A Message From Judge Michael Pitman

Dear SBA members:

Judge Frances Pitman and I are planning the SBA’s CLE programs for 2015. 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 2015:

- Recent Developments (13 hours): October 15 and 16, 2015
- December CLE by the hour (13 hours): December 15 and 16, 2015

Thank you for your support of the Shreveport Bar.
