IL NAELA UnProgram
October 27, 2017

Do you have paralegals in your office who could benefit from peer discussions about elder law topics?

The Illinois National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys will hold their Fall UnProgram on October 27, 2017 at the DePaul O'Hare Campus.  This program anticipates approval for 6.25 hours of MCLE.

  • $250 NAELA State and National Members; (supporting members are $225)
  • $200 Paralegals, Law Clerks and Legal Assistants employed by NAELA members
  • $375 Non-Members
  • $50 Students

The Unprogram idea was developed by the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys to encourage free discussion amongst its members. Members will be divided into smaller groups with a moderator to introduce and explain topics as contained on the outlines, and group Q&A is not only encouraged, but mandated among all participants.  At the end of the session, the participants will rotate to a room that will feature another topic and moderator. 

The UnProgram anticipates 6.25 of Illinois MCLE general credit hours.
