KJA provides outstanding continuing legal education seminars, chaired and taught by the state’s finest practitioners and nationally known speakers. Substantive areas of trial law (such as personal injury, products liability, commercial, criminal and employment law) are presented. Informative presentations on trial techniques and settlement tactics increase knowledge and boost skills. Member discounts on seminars also make joining KJA a worthwhile investment in your future. Programs are available for sale on audio (and sometimes video), as are seminar books. Members also receive discounts on seminar registration fees, packaged seminar materials and CDs.
