CLE Connect: CLE Presenters for Local Bars

The following is a list of potential CLE topics and presenters willing to present 1-2 hour CLE programs to your local bar association. Given COVID-19 and current public health circumstances, presentations will be virtual for the time being. Local bar leaders can contact the speakers directly using the email/phone number listed below. Don’t forget to seek CLE accreditation (from the office of Attorney Regulation Counsel) for your program. Information for CLE providers can be found on their website, and you can reach out to the Continuing Legal and Judicial Education office with questions. 

Are you a speaker who is willing to volunteer and you would like to be added to this list? Please fill out this form. Thank you!
