The IMPACT “Continuing Education Series for Legal, Policy and Political Professionals”


With so many factors around the COVID-19 pandemic still unkown, LABI has decided to rethink our service delivery for current and future events to ensure the health, safety and comfort level of attendees. 

Living in this new normal, yet recognizing that the show must go on, we are excited to announce The IMPACT “Continuing Education Series for Legal, Policy and Political Professionals” to replace LABI's “Beyond the Bar”. The IMPACT is a series of five virtual seminars that will occur monthly, starting in August and running through the end of the year. Each month will cover a new policy topic and showcase insightful panelists and instructors for an average of 3-4 hours giving the participants an opportunity to earn 4 CLE credits per day. This is not your typical CLE, as this practical workshop has been designed to update lawyers and business professionals on the latest laws and policy impacting their industry and ultimately their bottom line.  

• SERIES I: Legal Climate Change and the Legislature (September 3)

• SERIES II: Fueling Our Future: A Look at Energy and Infrastructure (September 24)

• SERIES III: Capital Gains: Maximizing Investment in Your Business and Louisiana (October 22)

• SERIES IV: The Fine Line: How Redistricting Will Define Our Future (November 19)

• SERIES V: May Your Days Be Merry and Bright, and May All Your Ethics Be Right (December 10)

The first seminar, Legal Climate Change and the Legislature, is scheduled for Thursday, September 3. This virtual session will be a deep dive into the passage of tort reform with some of the lawmakers who were leading the effort inside the State Capitol. Legal experts will also talk about the impacts of this legislation on civil litigation, as well as touch on the COVID-19 liability protections that the Legislature passed.
