On December 11, 2019 MBLB attorney Eric Winder Sella provided continuing legal education (CLE) at the Pan American Life Building in New Orleans, Louisiana, as part of the New Orleans Bar Association’s (NOBA) annual Procrastinators’ Programs. Eric participated on a panel simply titled, “I Object!” The program was intended to provide a young lawyer’s crash course in how and when to properly raise, and respond to, objections.
The Procrastinators’ Programs annually offers 56 Hours of CLE, including Ethics and Professionalism credits on each day of the program. Each year, an entire day of the eight-day program is dedicated to presentations by New Orleans-area young lawyers, with the day referred to as “By Young Lawyers, For Young Lawyers.” More information about the program, including registration details, may be found here. The program is offered each December, as Louisiana’s CLE requirements come due.
