Each year, the CAI Law Seminar Planning Committee reviews dozens of community association law presentation submissions by CAI members to determine the breakout sessions for the following year's event. In addition to presentation slides, the final selection of presenters submit a comprehensive manuscript to accompany their session, citing case studies and offering templates.
After Law Seminar, a subcommittee analyzes all of the manuscripts and nominates the Best Manuscript of the Law Seminar, which is then approved by the full Planning Committee and the College of Community Association Lawyers' Board of Governors. The Best Manuscript sets the benchmark for all future Law Seminar submissions.
