to attend an educational seminar for CLE credit who are not able to pay
full registration fees. ABI will handle such instances on a
case-by-case basis and will work with the attorney on alternative
solutions. For persons who cannot meet the full registration
rate, ABI will offer a reduced rate based on what the attorney can
reasonably afford to cover of the cost of meals and materials.
For persons unable to pay a reduced rate, we may allow the attorney to
work at our registration area for a few hours during attendee check-in,
or assist in conference set-up. ABI also has reduced rates for
government employees, professors, law clerks and students. For
