Event description

Description

We invite you to attend the Fifth Annual APA-CMS Bar Exam planning law session, a realistic simulated law school experience for planners and land use professionals. Naturally, it takes place in a bar, back again this year at the Haymarket Pub and Brewery!

Join Ancel Glink attorneys and their Quorum Forum podcast, as your team is tested on the year's most important planning laws and cases, covering cannabis, signs, telecommunications, and more! Participants will compete for unreasonable grades, set by a harsh curve, ultimately earning the winning team a fabulous prize! Everyone will literally "pass the bar" after attending this session, though you are welcome to stop and have a drink with us before you do.

To help us provide the most beneficial Bar Exam experience, please fill out this 1-question survey about the law topics that most interest you: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/9C83ZDZ.

CM: 1.5 CM Law Credits Approved
For program questions, please email: cms@ilapa.org

NETWORKING

After the Bar Exam, grab a beer as well as pizza and appetizers, and stick around for some networking. APA-CMS and the CUPPA Alumni Association, in partnership with various UIC planning student groups, will host its Annual Networking and Mentorship Event from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. This will be a great opportunity to reacquaint with familiar faces while sharing insights and advice about planning practice in the real world. The event is free, just let us know if you plan on attending when you get your ticket for the law session.
