Civil Rights Etouffee CLE



Register Today

Please join us in New Orleans for the second installment of the Civil Rights Étouffée.

In 2017, the first edition of the Civil Rights Étouffée was attended by 100 attorneys from 11 states, and we completely sold out weeks ahead of time.  In 2019, seating will be limited and we anticipate selling out once again.

The CLE cost is low for a program of this length and quality.  Each of the panelists pay their own way for this event, to help us keep costs down and pass the savings onto our attendees.
