MACDL 2023 Legislative Enactments

Friday, September 22, 2023

12:00 p.m.

Via Zoom

Join MACDL’s Legislative Committee Chair Walt McKee as he reviews, in the dust of this past legislative session, this session’s bills and laws that were finally enacted that will affect the practice of criminal defense and the lives of our clients moving forward.

Attendees from the MACDL June annual conference can attend this live webcast for FREE to supplement Walt’s earlier presentation. (Registration is still required.)

MACDL members who did not attend the June conference can register to attend this one-hour CLE for $25. Non-MACDL members can pay $50 for this one-hour CLE.

This CLE qualifies for one general CLE credit with the Board of Bar Overseers, as well as one CLE credit with MCILS (not for payment).


 Full payment must be received prior to the day of the event.

Contact Tina Nadeau at with any questions.
