Recent developments in legislation & Jurisprudence – Shreveport Convention Center

September 18-19, 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!
