iba-cleIn an age where nearly every task can be completed on the Web, it’s no surprise that online education is gaining in popularity for busy professionals across the globe. Recognizing the need to provide quality legal education in the online arena as well as in the live setting, the IndyBar is proud to introduce IndyBar Online CLE. Now the same quality educational programming from the IndyBar can be accessed anytime, anywhere, with just a computer and Internet connection.

Featuring a course catalog of more than 70 courses representing over 15 areas of substantive law, the IndyBar’s convenient one-hour programs are perfect for squeezing into your busy schedule, whether at the office, at home or anywhere in between. Plus, IndyBar Online CLE is competitively priced, making it an ideal choice to complement the bar’s live CLE offerings.

What is Online CLE? Online CLE is a catalog of IndyBar programs previously offered in a live format within the past two years. All programs meet distance education credit standards.

Why is the IndyBar offering Online CLE? The answer is two-fold. First, the CLE Commission allows attorneys to receive up to six hours of credit per three year educational period in an online format. Second, the bar understands your time is valuable. If you are unable to attend the live session, this format allows you access to the information at a time more convenient for you.

How do I register for IndyBar Online CLE programs? This registration is comparable to the process for regular IndyBar programs. Simply review and select programs for your shopping cart. Go to your shopping cart to make payment arrangements.

Once the payment process is complete, an email confirming your registration will be sent to the email address on file with the IndyBar. Follow the link within the email to access your Online CLE course.

How long do I have access to the purchased Online CLE program? Your purchase provides up to a 30-day access from the time of purchase to view and complete the educational requirements of the Indiana Commission for Continuing Legal Education. Failure to complete the online course within 30 days will require you to re-enroll and purchase again in order to view and complete the education program.

How do I report my Online CLE credit? Once you review the program in its entirety, the IndyBar will report all credits earned within 10 days of completion directly to the Indiana Commission for Continuing Legal Education.•

  1. If a class action suit or other manner of retribution is possible, count me in. I have email and voicemail from the man. He colluded with opposing counsel, I am certain. My case was damaged so severely it nearly lost me everything and I am still paying dearly.

  2. There's probably a lot of blame that can be cast around for Indiana Tech's abysmal bar passage rate this last February. The folks who decided that Indiana, a state with roughly 16,000 to 18,000 attorneys, needs a fifth law school need to question the motives that drove their support of this project. Others, who have been "strong supporters" of the law school, should likewise ask themselves why they believe this institution should be supported. Is it because it fills some real need in the state? Or is it, instead, nothing more than a resume builder for those who teach there part-time? And others who make excuses for the students' poor performance, especially those who offer nothing more than conspiracy theories to back up their claims--who are they helping? What evidence do they have to support their posturing? Ultimately, though, like most everything in life, whether one succeeds or fails is entirely within one's own hands. At least one student from Indiana Tech proved this when he/she took and passed the February bar. A second Indiana Tech student proved this when they took the bar in another state and passed. As for the remaining 9 who took the bar and didn't pass (apparently, one of the students successfully appealed his/her original score), it's now up to them (and nobody else) to ensure that they pass on their second attempt. These folks should feel no shame; many currently successful practicing attorneys failed the bar exam on their first try. These same attorneys picked themselves up, dusted themselves off, and got back to the rigorous study needed to ensure they would pass on their second go 'round. This is what the Indiana Tech students who didn't pass the first time need to do. Of course, none of this answers such questions as whether Indiana Tech should be accredited by the ABA, whether the school should keep its doors open, or, most importantly, whether it should have even opened its doors in the first place. Those who promoted the idea of a fifth law school in Indiana need to do a lot of soul-searching regarding their decisions. These same people should never be allowed, again, to have a say about the future of legal education in this state or anywhere else. Indiana already has four law schools. That's probably one more than it really needs. But it's more than enough.

  3. This man Steve Hubbard goes on any online post or forum he can find and tries to push his company. He said court reporters would be obsolete a few years ago, yet here we are. How does he have time to search out every single post about court reporters and even spy in private court reporting forums if his company is so successful???? Dude, get a life. And back to what this post was about, I agree that some national firms cause a huge problem.

  4. rensselaer imdiana is doing same thing to children from the judge to attorney and dfs staff they need to be investigated as well

  5. Sex offenders are victims twice, once when they are molested as kids, and again when they repeat the behavior, you never see money spent on helping them do you. That's why this circle continues
