Interesting CLE: "Love, Law, and Litigation" With Tony Kushner

Love it or hate it, we (almost) all have to spend time on CLE.  (Where can you move if you want to practice in CLE-free bliss?  Answer here.)

But if it's just too tedious for you, and you can't stand the thought of another four hours of "Emerging Issues In Insurance Coverage" or the like, there are plenty of providers out there who want to offer you something different and interesting.  Today's example: West LegalEdcenter, which on June 9 in Minneapolis will offer a panel discussion featuring Pulitzer Prize-winning "Angels in America" playwright Tony Kushner.

The panel, titled "Love, Law, and Litigation: A Dialog of Bias in American Sexual and Gender Identity," is co-presented by the Guthrie Theater, and will explore "polarized social attitudes related to sexual orientation and gender identity and their effect on law throughout the United States," according to the event's press release.

The course will utilize both live actors and discussions of excerpts from Kushner's play.  There will also be a live webcast.  The two hours of MCLE credit will satisfy Elimination of Bias and Ethics requirements in several states.  So if you've been casting about looking for a way to expand your horizons while fulfilling your MCLE requirements, perhaps an afternoon of great American drama is your ticket.
