CLEs: more content, more convenience

The MSBA continues to expand its CLE programming each year. Last year we offered roughly 300 programs. Section CLE programming continues to be a central part of your MSBA membership, but with busy members throughout the state, it’s not always easy to attend a one-hour program in Minneapolis. Almost all MSBA CLE programs now offer a remote participation option allowing members to attend programs through their computers or mobile devices. With live programs, there is no limit on the number of CLE hours that can be taken remotely.

The MSBA On-Demand CLE catalog also continues to grow. It now includes over 100 accredited CLE programs, including ethics and elimination of bias programs. (Minnesota attorneys can record up to 15 credits of on-demand CLEs each reporting period.)

This year the MSBA is going to take this concept even further. While we think you will find great value in attending the MSBA Tech Conference (on October 9) in person, the conference also will offer a remote option, allowing attendees to join the conference virtually, from anywhere with an internet connection. We’ve also expanded our bonus tech programming this year into a Tech Month that will include over 20 CLE programs in October, many of which are free and all of which are available to remote attendees as well.
