CLE roundup

CLE roundup

Listen to this article

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.
