CLE roundup

I love a great continuing legal education seminar and all similar programs. These seminars promote awareness of ever-changing law and provide an opportunity for lawyers to pick each others’ brains – there is no need to reinvent the wheel. Last, but certainly not least, attending a CLE provides for networking opportunities.

I prefer programs that are under 90 minutes and provide tangible and quantifiable information I can instantly use when I return to the office (like sample motions or checklists). My favorite programs are ones are ones that give practical tips and ones that provide a view from the bench.

  1. Thank you, Alicia. These programs keep us old litigators up to date as well.The sessions keep me informed, let me see friends and leave invigorated to try the new tactic, often with names of more experienced counsel to consider for client referrals. If I can pick up one tip which makes me more effective or my assistant’s life a bit easier, its time well spent.
