We are currently at capacity for space at Morrison & Foerster. Cooley LLP has generously offered to host a live webcast at their office in Palo Alto. If you have already registered and would like to change locations to join the webcast in Palo Alto, please e-mail Maria Avalos at mavaloscruz@lccr.com to let her know. If you are located closer to Palo Alto, we encourage you to attend the live webcast so others nearer to San Francisco can attend in person.

There are still seats available at Cooley. If you would like to be placed on the waitlist for MoFo, please e-mail Maria Avalos at mavaloscruz@lccr.com and she can let you know if spaces become available. However, we will circulate a link to view a recording following the training for those who are not able to attend at either location.
