We regret to inform you that the School Law Practice Seminar, scheduled for this week, has been cancelled due to Hurricane Michael. The National Hurricane Center places the trajectory of the hurricane over the Southeast U.S., affecting Charleston and major travel hubs. Our primary concern is the safety of our attendees, both in Charleston and traveling there.

Please be assured that we will refund all registrations fees. In addition, while we cannot guarantee return of charges incurred as a result of your hotel reservation, we will work diligently with the Francis Marion management on this matter.

We will advise as we have further information.

Thank you for your continued commitment to COSA and public schools.  We look forward to providing alternative CLE opportunities in the coming months.
