                              What Will You Gain from Internet CLE?

 

          Besides strategic information taught by skilled presenters, the main thing is time. And what lawyer doesn’t need more of that?

 

          When you take a CLE course on-line – either a live webcast or a video replay – there is no need to travel. You can stay put wherever you are: home, office, or anywhere you have a computer with an Internet connection. And if you are interrupted, you have 60 days to log back in and complete the program. And that surely equates to more time for other things – like leisure or billable hours.

 

          The Academy offers scores of programs on line. To see what is available, go to the SCBA website (www.scba.org), click “MCLE” from the left-hand menu, select “On-Line Video  Replays and Live Webcasts,” and peruse the available offerings.

 

          Both video replays and live webcasts have advantages. Webcasts allow you to email questions to the presenters – and receive an answer – in real time. And while you have to take a webcast at a specified time, if you do not finish it you can access the program again in its archived version. (In fact, if you register for a webcast and don’t take it at all, you will have access to the video replay.) If, on the other hand, you want to consider various treatments of a given topic, you might want to opt for on-line replays. Some of the best programs the Academy has presented in the last few years – all conveniently listed under practice areas and all available 24-7 – are available as video replays.  You can even sample a replay before deciding to make a purchase. 

 

          When you take an on-line CLE course of either kind, virtually everything is done on-line: registration, tuition payment, downloading of course materials, and receipt of your MCLE certificate. And if – as occasionally happens – the course also includes a tangible hand-out that cannot be accessed on-line (a published book, for example), the Academy mails it to you within a few days.

 

          Under the OCA rules, attorneys admitted more than two years may fulfill their MCLE requirements in non-traditional formats, including on-line CLE. If you fall into that category, we urge you to try the Academy’s on-line seminars, one of the largest such collections anywhere.

 
          Bill Gates said, “The Internet is becoming the town square for the global village of tomorrow.” For many a busy lawyer, tomorrow has come. While there may be nothing better than joining colleagues for CLE at the actual, “brick and mortar” SCBA Center, sometimes it is just too hard to do that. The Internet provides access to the virtual “town square” of shared expertise and ongoing professional enlightenment.
