Eric S. Spengler, Chair and F. William DeVore IV, Vice Chair

In early October of 2018 the Civil Litigation Section held their annual business meeting to plan Continuing Legal Education programs and gage membership interests regarding social and networking events. A networking event was held at Town Brewing and a social event was held at the Bojangles arena (Charlotte Checker’s game) to promote congeniality amongst section member and to increase section membership. The section hosted two CLEs, “Halloween CLE IV: Harry Potter, Batman and Halloween Pranks and “Rules of Court Competition” and sponsored the annual MCB Holiday Party. A CLE on the use of technology in small- and medium law firms is planned and subject to final approval.

Section members stayed up to date on relevant information and changes with regular section-wide communications.

Section leaders look forward to the upcoming year, including social opportunities and increased CLE programming.  Any ideas or suggestions for future events or CLE’s may be submitted to
