The National Association of Bond Lawyers (“NABL”) has announced that it is offering up to five scholarships to law school students to attend its 2013 Fundamentals of Municipal Bond Law Seminar. Located in the District of Columbia, NABL was incorporated as a non-profit corporation in 1979, and exists to promote the integrity of the municipal market by advancing the understanding of and compliance with the law affecting public finance. NABL pursues this mission in a number of ways, including, but not limited to, providing several annual educational programs for its members and others in the law relating to state and municipal bonds and other obligations.
The 2013 Fundamentals of Municipal Bond Law Seminar is one of these educational programs. Designed for attorneys, paralegals, government officials and employees, financial consultants and other municipal finance professionals and market participants seeking a basic knowledge of municipal bond law and related municipal finance issues, it is open to both NABL members and non-members. The seminar is being held April 17-19, 2013 at the Swissotel Chicago in Chicago, Illinois. The 2013 seminar brochure and details will be available on the NABL website (www.nabl.org) in early February. Click here to view the 2012 seminar brochure.
