The Seventh Circuit Bar Association will hold a daylong program on Friday, Feb. 6 at the Old State Capitol in Springfield which will cover Abraham Lincoln, his legal career and his vision for America. Stephen R. Kaufmann of HeplerBroom's Springfield law office is a member of the Planning Committee for that program.
While the program will be presented live in Chicago, a webcast of the program will be shown in Springfield. Seating is limited to the first 110 persons who register. The program is available to the general public. CLE credit will be provided for lawyers who attend the program.
The cost is $45 for nonmembers of the Association and $25 for members. You may register online at www.7thcircuitbar.org or at the Old State Capitol prior to the start of the program at 8:45 a.m. Registration at the Old State Capitol begins at 8:00 a.m.
A number of distinguished Judges and lawyers will speak on a variety of subjects, including Lincoln's path to becoming a lawyer, his entry into politics, and his view of the Constitution. The Seventh Circuit Bar Association's website details the entire program. Questions may be directed from Springfield to panelists in Chicago.
For those registered for the program, lunch will be provided at the Sangamo Club by Brown, Hay & Stephens, LLP and a cocktail reception will follow, hosted by HeplerBroom and Londrigan, Potter & Randle, P.C.
