MCLE Conference 2017
Saturday September 23, 2017
8:15 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Since 2001, California paralegals are required by California statute to complete eight hours of MCLE (minimum continuing legal education) every two years, in rolling two year blocks, beginning January 1st of each odd year. These must consist of at least four hours of legal ethics and the remaining four hours of general MCLE topics.  The SBPA hosts an annual continuing education conference to specifically address this requirement. In keeping with traditions, our MCLE Conference will again include a delicious continental breakfast, your choice of picnic lunch to be enjoyed on the grounds of the sunken gardens and a private docent-led tour of the courthouse (if available), courtesy of Courthouse Legacy Fund, taking us behind the scenes to many locations not ordinarily shown to the public!  We will also enjoy our ever growing Exhibitors Hall and prize drawings. We hope to see you at this year’s all day conference!
