2012 ABA GPSolo Spring Meeting Recap

(in conjunction with the ABA Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Section (TTIPS))


May 17–19

DoubleTree Suites

Charleston, South Carolina


The ABA GPSolo Division’s Spring Meeting was a huge success. Members and guests from GPSolo and TIPS had a wonderful time at the 50th Anniversary Dinner Party on the historic plantation. They ate delicious low country and southern cuisine and danced the night away. Our public service project with the Trident Literacy Association allowed us to reach out to more than 20 adult students and discuss legal issues that they are facing in their lives. We also had 16 CLE programs, including two programs for immigration training for attorneys to be able to volunteer for a Kids In Need of Defense (KIND) case. We concluded the meeting with the Council Meeting on Saturday afternoon.
