Legal Seminars

During the fall, the Legislative Services Agency (LSA) schedules a series of legal seminars. Each week for approximately a month, LSA invites its staff or an outside speaker to make a presentation of two hours or less to legislative staff and legislators regarding a specific legal or legislative topic of interest. LSA generally makes application to the Iowa Supreme Court for continuing legal education (CLE) accreditation for the legal seminars. However, CLE credits are not available for persons who access a legal seminar via the internet as a webinar. Legal seminar materials are posted on this site for future reference. Some presentations have been recorded and will be made available on this site in the near future.
