The Young Lawyers Division of The Iowa State Bar Association proudly presents Bridge the Gap goes to Vegas!

The Bridge the Gap Seminar is a favorite of past participants and one that keeps them coming back year after year. Not only will attendees be treated to high-quality speakers discussing important legal topics, but also short video clips connected with Vegas will be played between speakers to lighten the mood a bit. Organizers hope attendees will find this event as informational as other CLE events...but much more fun!

Plus, by attending this event, attendees will earn 15 hours of state CLE which includes 3 ethics hours and 7 federal hours (credit is pending at this time). You don't have to be a betting man or woman to know that the price per credit you receive at this event, is a gamble you don't want to pass up.

Get registered today by clicking the "Register" link above.

We bet you will have a great learning experience because at this CLE, there are only winners!

Only electronic materials will be available for this event. Please bring the appropriate technology with you to the event so you may view the materials.  Materials will be emailed in advance for download.
