Yesterday, for the fifth consecutive year, I served as program chair for the Georgia Personal Injury Practice Seminar sponsored by the Institute for Continuing Legal Education in Georgia.  As always, I followed my father’s advice to "surround yourself with people who are smarter than you" by recruiting as speakers some of the brightest lawyers in Georgia. As always, I learned far more from the other speakers than I taught in my own presentation titled simply, "Truck Wreck Cases."  While participation in CLE programs is time consuming, I find that I always get more out of it than I put in.
