This workshop is open to law and graduate students, lawyers, and practitioners, and has been accredited for 12 CLE hours. The workshop and course materials are provided at no cost to accepted applicants, though participants will be responsible for their own transportation and lodging. Some meals will be provided.

Applications to attend this workshop should be completed by October 11, 2013, and returned to matso092@umn.edu.
