Practice does not make perfect. But often we feel the need to be perfect within our own practice.

This program is meant to help perfect our practice by focusing on topics that often get overlooked, in an effort to achieve a more well-rounded practice.

  • It's a Grey Matter (of Law)

  • Murdaugh, Murder and Murky Ethics
  • Case Law Update
