San Francisco Law Library's Lunchtime Speaker Series
The San Francisco Law Library offers free seminar programs during "lunchtime" (starting at noon and generally lasting for 1-2 hours) with topics ranging from e-Filing to mindfulness. Past speakers have included judges, a former clerk to United States Supreme Court Judges, and experienced attorneys. Many of our programs now offer free participatory MCLE credit as well.
Programs are free and open to everyone, and no registration is required. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis, and all programs are located in the Library's Kurt W. Melchior Seminar Room. Check our website, blog, or the calendar below for all upcoming classes. You can also email email@example.com with "subscribe" in the subject line to receive our E-Updates with information about upcoming programs. We hope to see you there!
The San Francisco Law Library is a multiple activity MCLE provider approved by the State Bar of California.
