AAML Southern California Chapter’s Sixth Annual Trial Basics Seminar: You are registered!

Dear TBS Applicant:

You previously expressed interest in attending the sixth annual Trial Basics Seminar, presented at no charge by the Southern California Chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.  The good news is that you are registered for one of the 100 seats!

As a reminder, TBS has two parts: (1) The main seminar at the Westin South Coast Plaza Hotel on April 17, 2020 and (2) Post-Seminar Practicum at University of Irvine on April 18, 2020.  We expect that you would attend both the main seminar and the practicum.  The practicum will last approximately a full day; further details will be provided at the main seminar on April 17thth.

The main seminar on April 17th will start at 8:30 a.m. and end at 4:00 p.m.  A substantial breakfast will be available from 7:30 – 8:25 a.m.  We will have morning and afternoon breaks, and lunch will be provided.  All of this will be at no charge.

Parking for the main seminar will be at the Westin South Coast Plaza Hotel.  Self-parking is available; it is $12, with validation which will be provided at the registration table. Valet parking is also available for $20, no validation required.

A major goal is to ensure that all 100 seats are filled, and that we have zero “no-shows.”  Thus, if you for any reason cannot make the main seminar on April 17th (which would also mean that you would not be eligible for the practicum), please immediately notify us at [email protected].  In that case, we would arrange for someone on our waiting list to take your place.  Anyone who might not timely notify us and then fail to attend would be prohibited from attending the TBS in future years.  So, please work with us towards avoiding any empty seats!

We look forward to having you at this TBS, or at least promptly hearing from you if you might not be able to attend.  Please contact us at [email protected] if you might have any questions in the interim.
