ELPO sponsors reception following Lexington legal event

by Mandy Hicks

ELPO is helping sponsor a reception following a Lexington legal event called TAB Goes to College on April 4.

The American College of Trial Lawyers and University of Kentucky Law’s Trial Advocacy Board (TAB) are gathering to discuss common ethical and civility issues. The program has been approved for two hours of ethics CLE (Continuing Legal Education) credit by the Kentucky Bar Association. Pat Moloney, a Lexington attorney and Fellow of ACTL, is coordinating the event, which will feature a panel of presenters: Chief Justice John Minton, UK Professor Richard Underwood and attorneys John Prather and Robert Elliot.

The audience for this program will be Kentucky Fellows (members of ACTL) and the members of UK Law’s Trial Advocacy Board, the student led and funded organization dedicated to the development of effective, practical skills in trial advocacy. All of the proceeds from the CLE program will be donated to TAB.

Following this program at the law school courtroom, there will be a reception at the nearby Hilary J. Boone Center at the University of Kentucky for Fellows, their spouses, student TAB members, and other special guests. The reception is sponsored by ELPO, as well as Stoll Keenon Ogden, PLLC; Stites and Harbison, PLLC; and Sturgill, Turner, Barker and Moloney, PLLC.

Charles English, Whayne Priest and Michael Owsley, the three living founding members of ELPO, are members of The American College of Trial Lawyers.
