Your membership in the LPMT section includes a free subscription to The Bottom Line, including the free MCLE offered in each issue. Tables of contents of past issues are posted on the public side of the site, and members can access full issues since June 2011 and request copies of articles older than that in the Members Only Area.

Message from the Chair

Nyanza Shaw, Esq.From the December 2014 issue.

Welcome to the December issue of The Bottom Line.   This is our annual MCLE issue.  It is chock full of interesting MCLE self-study articles.  Besides helping you fulfill your MCLE requirement, we hope that these articles provide you with valuable information that is both helpful and informative to you in managing your law practice. 

As the 2014-2015 Chair of LPMT, it is my goal to get more members actively involved in the Section.  The Bottom Line and the eNews are your publications!  They are great opportunities for you get published, get exposure, and share your knowledge with other section members.   We are always looking for contributors for The Bottom Line (eTBL), the eNews, as well as relevant and interesting information and articles that we can share with all of you via our social media sites.  We also welcome any feedback and suggestions for future issues. 

We want to hear from you!!
