A Motion to What? Bankruptcy Law Made Easy for Court Personnel… or Your Money Back

This is an introductory level class on bankruptcy law that will provide attendees with a better understanding of the Bankruptcy Code and procedural rules and how they impact what we do in the Clerk’s Office.

Presentation Lessons from the Broadway Stage

From Overture to Curtain Call, what can Broadway musicals teach us about communicating a story and capturing an audience to leave them “wanting more”? We will explore how musicals are put together and how that structure can help make your presentations really "sing"!

Don’t Worry Be Happy

This course discusses practical ideas to increase your job satisfaction and happiness. The class was developed based on research regarding qualities and actions that consistently happy people employ. These include: practicing gratitude, choosing happiness, spending time with happy people, reducing worry, as well as several others.
