Because of the high volume of registrants, we will be livestreaming the seminar on Youtube, instead of having you join the Zoom seminar directly.  Here are the instructions for joining the seminar, signing up, and asking questions:

  1. You can watch the seminar live at the following link:
  2. You will need to sign the virtual sign in sheet.  This is important to get credit because if your CLE submission is audited, the Board of Bar Examiners will ask the WCBA to look at our sign in sheet.  So please take a minute to sign in on the google document you can access at the following link:
  3. If you want to ask a question during the presentation, please email it to the host, Jessee Blocher, at [email protected], and Jesse will find a good time to ask it during the presentation for you, time permitting.
  4. We are going to record the seminar, so, technology permitting, it should be available as an on-demand webinar later.


We look forward to seeing you there!
