Join your colleagues in Portland for sessions that will offer new ideas and approaches to provide quality continuing legal education programming to the attorneys of today and tomorrow!

Highlights Include:

Seize the Opportunity as More States Require Diversity and Inclusion, Mental Health, and Substance Use Disorder Credits

Diversity and inclusion, mental health issues, and substance use disorder prevention are getting more attention from the profession and CLE regulators have taken note.  With attorneys in more states now required to take programming on these topics, how can CLE providers meet the requirements and, even more important, offer useful educational programming? Get best practices and suggestions for creating engaging, beneficial, and accreditable programs that lawyers will want to attend.

The Downs and Ups of Building a CLE Curriculum for Clients

The stock market crash in 2008 left many working in a non-billing role in big law scrambling for a way to keep their jobs. PD had to get creative. While our speakers were in slightly different positions, they concluded that if they could draw a connection from their work to their respective firms’ client bases, they might be spared. From those somewhat desperate roots, many client CLE training curricula were born. Ten years later, they continue to be involved in fine-tuning client CLE offerings. Come hear about their pratfalls and pyrrhic victories in developing a client curriculum.

It’s a Boat! It’s a Plane! It’s a CLE Program!

Destination CLE programs are all the rage—and for good reason! They are an excellent opportunity for your members to go on vacation while getting CLE credit and having fun doing it.  BUT, is it all it’s hopped up to be? Our panelists will discuss the good, bad and ugly of planning and offering destination CLE programs including cruises and CLE programs abroad.

Inquiring Minds Want to Know: What Motivates a Lawyer to Attend Your CLE Event?

Ever wonder what lawyers want in a CLE Program? Is it their reporting year and they just need credit? Is their preference to attend a CLE event in-person or via distance learning? Is the length of the seminar important? What kind of diversity are they looking for in a panel? Gain insight into these burning questions by attending a fireside chat with a panel of Portland lawyers who will share their various perspectives on what really motivates them to attend a CLE event.
