Imagine: A New Future for Pro Bono and CLE

  1. 1. I think CLE matters Redefining CLE When Classes (and Credits) Aren’t Enough The Future of Online CLE Is Free Update: The Future of Online CLE Is Still Free Where Have All the Young Lawyers Gone? No, really. Marketing how-to isn’t continuing legal education.
  2. 2. But many lawyers don’tIn 2010, the Colorado Lawyer asked “Why did you become a lawyer?”I wanted to be required to take 45 units of generalCLE and 7 units of ethics CLE every three years.
  3. 3. CLE has lost its meaning
  4. 4. Where Did It Go?How much time do we have?
  5. 5. What is the [actual] purpose of CLE?As society becomes more complex, the delivery of legal serviceslikewise becomes more complex. The public rightly expects thatpracticing attorneys, in their practice of law, and judges, in theperformance of their duties, will continue their legal and judicialeducation throughout the period of their service to society. It is thepurpose of these rules to make mandatory a minimum amount ofcontinuing legal education for practicing attorneys and judges in orderto foster and promote competence and professionalism in the practiceof law and the administration of justice.
  6. 6. Why is she talking about CLE? Don’t worry. It’s only 5 minutes.
  7. 7. Rule 260.8Lawyers can earn up to 9 credits in eachthree-year compliance period for pro bonowork! One credit/5 hours of representation One credit/completed matter for mentoring lawyers One credit/completed matter for mentoring law students
