Today I went to a meeting of the committee that I was recently appointed to, which is studying how to implement online CLE in Louisiana. Currently, Louisiana allows lawyers to get 4 hours of the annual CLE requirements from online seminars. Our committee is trying to figure out how to deliver CLE content online in the most practical and efficient way.
I won’t get into all the possible issues (most of which I probably can’t even imagine anyway), but there are questions about whether the Bar should outsource this function to a third-party provider such as West, or some other company, or how it would would work if the Bar did not outsource this function.
I’m keenly interested in hearing from those of you in other states that have online CLE, especially those who have participated in online CLE programs. What sorts of online programs are there, and how do you access them? What aspects of the online CLE programs do you like, or dislike? I’d very much appreciate your input, either in the comments (which I’ve enabled) or by email. This is probably a good topic to leave out in the open (for the benefit of all) so I suppose that leaving comments would be preferable.
