conference rate of $265/night. Reservations must be
made directly with the resort by July 8, 2007. Reservations may be made
only once you have registered with ABI. Upon payment of the conference
registration fees, you will receive hotel reservation information with
your conference confirmation. Rooms are held on a first-come,
firstserved basis. ABI cannot guarantee any rooms after the
specially-rated ABI block is filled.
Attire is casual throughout the conference.

including 1 hour of ethics, is available. CPE credit is
also available; mark the appropriate box on the registration form.
ABI certifies that this activity has been approved for MCLE credit by
the State Bar of California in the amount of 9 hours, of which three
hours will apply to legal ethics.
*ABI acknowledges that in some instances there will be persons who need
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 information on
tuition assistance, send an e-mail to Jenn Walker.
All fees, except a $75 handling fee, will be
refunded if written notice of cancellation is received by July
20, 2007. No refunds will be honored after July 20, but
substitutions will be allowed.
