A special rate has been confirmed, plus an 18 percent resort fee, for 2020 Joint Spring Meeting attendees, which includes complimentary WiFi and other amenities. Other government taxes and fees are 11 percent and 18 percent (subject to change). Rooms are filled on a first-come, first-served basis until Wednesday, April 1, 2020, 5:00 P.M. Atlantic Time. After the cutoff date or when the room block has been filled, available rooms will be sold at prevailing rates.

To reserve, book online or call the hotel directly at 787/721-7500 and reference GPSolo.

Individuals with guaranteed reservations must cancel their reservation 48 hours prior to the scheduled day of arrival to avoid a one-night cancellation charge.

Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Credit

States typically decide whether a program qualifies for CLE credit in their jurisdiction 4 – 8 weeks after the program application is submitted. For many live events, credit approval is not received prior to the program. GLSA directly applies for and ordinarily receives CLE credit for its programs in AK, AL, AR, AZ, CA, CO, CT, DE, GA, GU, HI, IA, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, ME, MN, MO, MP, MS, MT, NC, ND, NH, NJ, NM, NV, NY, OH, OK, OR, PA, RI, SC, TN, TX, UT, VA, VI, VT, WA, WI, and WV. These states sometimes do not approve a program for credit before the program occurs. This course is expected to qualify for 11.0 CLE credit hours including 1.0 ethics hours in 60-minute states, and 13.2 credit hours including 1.2 ethics hours in 50-minute states. Attorneys may be eligible to receive CLE credit through reciprocity or attorney self-submission in other states. For more information about CLE accreditation in your state, contact Annette M. Waggoner at awaggoner@glsaonline.org or 847/907-4670.
