OAKLAND, Calif., Sept. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- For attorneys looking to take up a new practice area, Continuing Education of the Bar's annual The Basics Conference offers the opportunity to develop skills and network in the fields of Business Litigation, Employment Law, Family Law, and Trust & Estate Administration and Litigation. Held this year on September 15 and 16 at the Newport Beach Marriott Hotel & Spa, The Basics Conference is designed to help new attorneys considering particular practice areas as well as attorneys who want to change focus, to train new employees, and to network; attendees in all tracks will get a nuts-and-bolts grounding to prepare them for a running start in their chosen practice areas. An evening reception and networking lunch encourage attending attorneys and conference speakers to further engage with each other and make contacts across our four highlighted practice areas.
The Business Litigation track is designed to introduce attorneys to both the tactical and practical aspects of commercial disputes, while the Employment Law track acquaints attorneys with both management- and employee-side perspectives on legal issues that arise in employment relationships. In the Family Law track, practitioners and specialists will cover the essentials in detail, including substantive law, procedure, and client intake, and offer tips on handling a first family law trial. Attorneys in the Trust & Estate Administration and Litigation track will learn from experts in the field basic procedures and techniques regarding trust and estate administration and litigation. An attorney noted of the 2015 The Basics Conference, "It's been a fantastic experience, and I can say that this is definitely the most helpful session I've ever attended."
The Basics Conference attendees can book accommodation on site at the Newport Beach Marriott Hotel & Spa, located near some of southern California's loveliest shoreline and moments away from Balboa Island and the Upper Newport Bay Nature Preserve. Shopping, dining, tennis, and golf can all be enjoyed on the grounds as well as in Newport Beach and neighboring Corona del Mar.
