Millsaps College's Else School of Management is offering to all individuals seeking Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit 12 hours of CLE credit in litigation practice, substantive law updates, and contemporary practice issues in a unique environment. The program will be based out of Millsaps College's Casa Millsaps facility in the State of Yucatán, Mexico (Read an article on Casa Millsaps from BizEd Magazine). This program is open to all individuals seeking CLE credit.

The program will begin in the Else School of Management's own Center for Business and Culture in Mérida, Mexico, a city dating back to the early 1540's.
