I hope you can take part in one or more of the many events the Atlanta Bar has coming up this spring .
Atticus Finch CLE
There is a special CLE program –“ Atticus Finch : Who was he ? Who is he ? Thoughts on an American Hero and Local Politics ”– that will take place on March 2 ( 6pm to 8pm ) at Emory Law School . It will feature Professor Joseph Crespino ( Jimmy Carter Professor of History at Emory University ), Joseph Beck ( with Kilpatrick Townsend ), and Judge Richard Story , who will give the closing argument as Atticus , a role he has played in a local theatre production of “ To Kill A Mockingbird .” This program ( one hour of professionalism CLE credit ) opens with a wine and cheese reception and promises to be an engaging evening . Register for the Atticus Finch CLE here .
