PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- American Law Institute Continuing Legal Education is pleased to announce the return of Mutual Funds Today: Current Issues and Regulatory Developments in Investment Management, where for close to four decades, practitioners have attended for updates on mutual fund regulation and compliance issues. Set in Washington, DC, this program will provide up to 10.5 CLE credit hours, including 1 hour of ethics, and will be held Monday - Tuesday, October 5 - 6, 2015.

This course provides comprehensive materials, superior faculty, and an introductory lecture for those new to the area or those needing a refresher.

The luncheon keynote speaker is Martin Lybecker, a partner at Perkins Coie LLP and former Associate Director of the SEC's Division of Investment Management.
