Recent developments in legislation & Jurisprudence – Baton Rouge 2

November 15-16, 2014

In the rush of your daily work, do you struggle to keep up with the tremendous number of changes in the law each year? For busy lawyers like you, LSUcle is pleased to present our most comprehensive CLE seminar on changes in Louisiana law – 15 important topics for a full year of CLE.

Featured Topic: Business Corporation Act (Act 328, 2014 Reg. Session)

Act 328 replaces the entire Business Corporation Law (Chapter 1 of Title 12). One of the important developments for attorneys is that the new law will apply to professional corporations as well as business corporations. The new Act is based on the Model Act, which has been adopted by 30 states, including all states in the Southeast, east of the Mississippi River. Our speaker is LSU Law Professor Glenn G. Morris, Reporter and Chair of the Corporations Committee of the Louisiana State Law Institute. Professor Morris was responsible for drafting the Louisiana modifications of the Model Act, and all of the official comments added to the Louisiana version of the Act. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn from Professor Morris before the Act goes into effect on January 1, 2015!

Parking: Due to changes in LSU’s parking policy, we are no longer able to reserve the parking lot next to the Law Center for seminar parking.

Free parking is available in the North Fraternity Lot on West Lakeshore Drive (#8 on the map), a 7-minute walk to/from the Law Center.  Before parking, you must first obtain a free parking permit in the Visitor Center (#10 on theUnion Square map). The Visitor Center hours are 7:00 a.m.-5:30 p.m., Monday thru Friday. Vehicles without a permit will be ticketed.

Metered parking in the new Union Square Garage is available for weekday parking at a reduced rate of $6.00/day (normally $1.50/hour) with parking tags purchased in advance through LSUcle.  The garage (#9 on the map) is located next to the Law Center.  Tags must be purchased from LSUcle with registration and will be distributed at the garage beginning at 7:00 a.m.  Tags will not be available for onsite purchase in the garage.  However, visitors without prepaid tags may park in a numbered spot and pay at one of the kiosks located on Level 2 and Level 3 before leaving the garage on foot.  The onsite fee is $1.50/hour.

WARNING: Garage parking is limited. Our seminars may be competing for garage space with other campus events.  Consequently, the tags will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

Directions to the Union Square Parking Garage can be found here.
