North Dakota Constitutional Law Symposium
Celebrating over 130 years of the North Dakota Constitution
The University of North Dakota School of Law has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation in the state and on campus as we near August 17. After consulting with the UND Safety Office and working through the stringent event approval guidelines required by the University of North Dakota, the difficult decision was made that the Law Review Symposium will be moved to a virtual platform for all participants.
Amended and approved:
North Dakota 7.25 total - 6.25 hours of ND CLE credits and 1.0 hour of ND Ethics CLE credit
Minnesota 7.25 total - 6.25 hours of Standard CLE credit and 1.0 hour of Ethics CLE credit.
The symposium is presented by the North Dakota Law Review and the University of North Dakota School of Law. If you have questions, please contact Alexandra.Carthew@UND.edu or Logan.R.Carpenter@UND.edu
