2018-2019 CLE Schedule   |   2017-2018 Webcast on Demand

Last year, the Section moved into the technological age and revamped the monthly CLEs. It moved from a telephonic to a Webcast format. This change was a huge success. It allowed the speakers to use a PowerPoint or other handouts to aid their presentations and to poll the audience. The program also allowed the listeners to pose real-time questions in a chat function. Our attendance numbers were larger than ever!

The Section will continue the Webcast format for the 2018-2019 season. However, there will be a few additional changes. For instance, last year there were several presentations that were not recorded. Listeners had to tune in live to receive CLE credit. This year, however, every presentation will be recorded to some extent. Speakers will have the option of having their presentation available for after-market sales or for a period of 90 days only for those who preregister. In any event, if you have an oral argument or hearing during the presentation, don't fret! You now have the ability to hear all the presentations at a later time when you preregister.

The pricing will remain the same. The CLEs are available for advance individual purchase at $30 for section members and $45 for nonsection members. Section members can also purchase them in a bundle prior to July 17th, 2018 at a discounted rate of $240

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Cheri Wright of The Florida Bar at cwright@floridabar.org. For any questions or suggestions about the content of the upcoming seminars or serving as a presenter, please contact Kansas Gooden at KGooden@boydjen.com.
