Practice Groups

The LADC has launched three new practice groups in Employment Law, Medical Malpractice, and Construction and Commercial Litigation. The plan for these groups is for each to be active in the CLE seminars, the newsletter, and on the website. The practice groups provide a vehicle for more members to be active in the organization and a way to enhance our legal education function.  They also provide a way for our members who have a substantial part of their practice in a particular area of the law to communicate and collaborate with others who practice in that area.  


We are proud to announce the initial leaders for each group. We encourage members to become involved in the practice groups. You may join the groups here. Please click on the link under the practice group you wish to join and register today!
