Interesting CLE: Cruise the Mediterranean With Trial Lawyers

By Brian Kumnick on June 04, 2009 4:19 PM

At Greedy Associates we are not content with merely referring you to an evening of American drama, or a week of Alaskan fly-fishing for your CLE needs. We want to continue to ensure that you can find unusual and enjoyable ways to fulfill your requirements. Today, we bring you this: a cruise through the Greek Isles, with instruction on tort litigation.

The American Association for Justice is currently promoting a seven-day cruise aboard the Seven Seas Navigator, with stops in Greece and Turkey, this October. You get all the expected comfort and conveniences of a modern cruise vessel -- spa, golf, endless food and drink, casino, yada yada --  and the chance to visit wonders of the ancient world in places like Athens and Istanbul.  

And if that isn't enough, cruisers will have a chance to knock out "up to 7.5 continuing legal education credits, including ethics," at the same time, according to the AAJ website. Your 7.5 hours will run you about $600 (less if you're an AAJ member), on top of the $4000-and-up per-person price of the cruise. (And the cost of getting yourself to Athens, of course.)

As for content, the AAJ says only that "the seminar will feature some of AAJ's best national speakers," and we have no doubt that among the members of the plaintiffs' bar there are some pretty compelling speakers, but really, do the details matter? You'll be on a cruise ship in Greece.  Let's just get through the seminar and back to the cocktails and the fine dining, please.
