On Friday, June 16, 2017, the Hawaii Access to Justice Conference, sponsored by the Hawaii Access to Justice Commission, will be an all-day event.  Please attend to be part of an exciting, provocative discussion about seeking justice for the underserved, including opportunities for audience participation.   (The registration form is noted below and the conference agenda, which is subject to change.)

There will be opening remarks by State of Hawaii Governor David Y. Ige, Honorable Simeon R. Acoba, Jr., Chair, Hawaii Access to Justice Commission, and Honorable Mark E. Recktenwald, Chief Justice, Hawaii Supreme Court.

The keynote speaker will be Kellye Y. Testy, Dean of the University of Washington School of Law.  She is the 14th Dean and first woman to lead the University of Washington School of Law, a post she has held since 2009.  Recently, Dean Testy was named one of the nation’s most influential leaders in legal education.

Hawaii-licensed attorneys attending this event can receive five continuing legal education (“CLE”) credits and one ethics credit hour, which will satisfy in full the yearly three-credit CLE requirement.  At least one credit of ethics is required every three years — to be counted towards the annual CLE requirement.  (Three credits may be carried forward to the next year, so attendance meets the current year and next year’s CLE requirements in full.)
