Earn continuing legal education hours and hear a terrific panel of speakers on appellate law and practice by attending “A Blue Ribbon Panel On Appellate Advocacy.” Sponsored by the DuPage County Bar Association, the seminar will take place at noon on March 31, 2008 at the Attorney Resource Center at the DuPage County, Illinois courthouse.
A most excellent panel will speak and take questions:

• Justice Robert E. Byrne, Second District Illinois Appellate Court, speaking on, “Appellate Jurisdiction in the State Court”

Procrastinators beware! Seats are filling fast. Contact Chris Reed at the DCBA, 630-653-7779, for a reservation.
When you arrive, be sure to say hello to the Appellate Law Committee chair, who I am told has a wonderful personality and is particularly handsome.
