Continuing Legal Education Credits
FSMB will be working with the State Bar of California to determine the exact number of Continuing Legal Education credits to be offered.
Since we are trying to reduce the amount of paper we use at our programs, all materials will be included on a flash drive at the time of the workshop. Attendees are encouraged to bring a fully-charged laptop computer with them.
Business-casual attire is appropriate for all meeting functions. Average temperatures for San Diego in mid-November are highs in the 60’s – 70’s and lows in the 50’s. We recommend dressing in layers as the temperature in meeting rooms and personal comfort vary widely and are difficult to regulate at times.
Bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Anza-Borrego Desert and the Laguna Mountains to the east, and Mexico to the south, San Diego is spread out over 4,200 miles, as well as over 70 miles of coastline. The Kimpton Solamar Hotel is situated near San Diego Bay, between the San Diego Convention Center and Petco Park. Shopping, dining and entertainment venues can be found steps away in the historic Gaslamp Quarter.
