2024 Northeast Regional Retreat


April 12-14, 2024


The Heritage Hotel, Southbury, CT (see below for link to the hotel)


Are you located in the Northeast United States? We’d love to see you at the 2024 CLS Northeast Regional Retreat! While this retreat is targeted toward those hailing from the Northeast US region (Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Maine, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, D.C., and Maryland), all are welcome to attend.

Retreat Theme:
Developing Good Spiritual Disciplines in the Practice of Law

Foundation Scripture:
“You’re blessed when you’re at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule.” Matthew 5:3 (MSG)

Does God want us to slow down a bit? How does God want to transform us in the storm? Join us for an amazing weekend where we hope you will take the time away spiritual disciplines that you can also implement in the practice of law!

Our featured guest speaker, Peter Scazio, is an attorney and motivational speaker who uses his testimony as a cancer survivor to minister to others in the body of Christ. Throughout the retreat, Peter will be joined by Sean Stewart, CEO of Children’s Bible Fellowship of New York. Peter and Sean co-host a powerful podcast that unpacks a lot of spiritual truths. Over the weekend, together they will cover various areas of how God can use our brokenness and situations to surrender totally to him. At the end of this weekend of reflection, we hope attorneys and law students alike will learn how we can move from “doing” (like Martha) and into “being” (like Mary).

Our very own attorney and CLS member, Jonathan Nelson, will also provide an optional CLE on Saturday afternoon entitled “Religious Institutions in a Secular Environment.”
