    March 7, 2012 – Mark your calendars for two State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE® spring institutes and the annual State Bar presidential swearing in and Member Recognition and Networking event, June 11-15. These events will be held at the Chula Vista in Wisconsin Dells.

    The PINNACLE Litigation, Dispute Resolution & Appellate Practice Institute, June 11-12, and the PINNACLE Real Estate and Business Law Institute, June 14-15, each include more than 25 breakout sessions and two general session programs. Sessions at both institutes include substantive law, “how to” tips, technology related issues, and ethics. Attendees can choose from multiple breakout-sessions from basic to complex, designed for all levels of experience. Click on institute links above for specific program information.

    The institutes are produced with special cooperation from the State Bar’s Alternative Dispute Resolution, Appellate Practice, Business, Litigation, and Real Property, Probate & Trust Law sections.

    What are institutes?

    In 2011, State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE began producing several multi-day CLE institutes. The institutes, which replaced the annual convention format, enrich the learning and networking opportunities of attorneys in the same or related practice areas by delivering more in-depth programming to members in designated practice areas.

    A look ahead: Other upcoming institutes

    In addition to spring institutes, PINNACLE is planning the Health Law and Labor & Employment Law Institute, Aug. 23-24, at the Wilderness and the annual 2012 Wisconsin Solo Small Firm Conference, Oct. 25-27, at the Chula Vista, both in Wisconsin Dells.
