Upcoming CMS Law Session & Annual Mentoring/Networking Event

Planning Law Session – “Bar Exam II: The Sequel”

The APA-CMS “Bar Exam” Planning Law Session is a great opportunity for planners to learn about important legal issues in an authentic law school simulation. Naturally, it takes place in a bar. Participants will compete for unreasonable grades, set by a harsh curve, while studying the hottest planning law topics, including sign code reviews, premises liability for complete streets, school zoning, telecommunications, and lighting ordinances. You could be crowned valedictorian and win a fabulous prize! The capricious professors will be played by Ancel Glink attorneys David Silverman, Dan Bolin, and Christy Michaelson, who are actually very nice in real life. After the session, you can pass the bar and grab a drink for some networking with your fellow planners. DATE: Thursday, February 23, 2017 TIME: 4 PM – 5:30 PM CST PLACE: Jak's Tap, 901 W. Jackson, Chicago, IL 60607 COST: $15 Regular, $5 Student CM Credits: 1.5 CM Law Credits Approved RSVP for each event separately:
