About the Seminar
This program qualifies for 1.0 MCLE credit hour.  
What’s the most entertaining way to get that last hour of CLE before the March 1, 2013 MCLE Compliance Deadline? That’s right! By attending the SC Bar CLE Division’s 2nd Roller Derby CLE - “Layin’ Down the Law II: What Roller Derby Can Teach Lawyers About Civil Procedure!
Flat-track roller derby is America’s fastest growing sport! Join your colleagues on February 24 for a fun and informative hour of CLE followed by the excitement of seeing our own Columbia QuadSquad All-Stars - several of whom have strong ties to the SC legal Community - take on Richmond’s River City Poe’s Punishers in a high level bout by two of the Southeast’s premier teams. Every registrant will get a wonderful hour of CLE and a ticket to the bout!
USC Law Professor Joel Samuels, AKA “Sonny Pro Bono” is not only the coach of the nationally ranked Columbia QuadSquad All-Stars, but is a gifted teacher who will update you on developments to the Rules of Civil Procedure, and also draw parallels between the rules you follow as an attorney and the rules of flat-track roller derby. You will learn nuances of both games that will steer you to victory in your next contest - whether you are a litigator or a Roller Derby fan!

So come out on Sunday, February 24 to support the “home team” and get that final hour of MCLE! And remember, Roller Derby is a family sport, so bring your kids (children 10 and under get in free!)

Who says CLE can’t be FUN? Come out on Sunday, February 24 for an hour of great CLE, a chance to network with your friends, cheer on your Columbia QuadSquad colleagues, and a unique opportunity to experience the thrill and excitement of flat-track Roller Derby!
