The Indiana Supreme Court and Commission for Continuing Legal Education will host an event next week marking a milestone — 30 years of required CLE in the state.
The free program, “CLE in the 21st Century — Helping Lawyers Meet the Challenges of the Digital World,” will be from 1-4:30 p.m. Oct. 19 in the eighth floor auditorium of state court administrative offices at 30 S. Meridian St., Indianapolis. The event marking the anniversary of formal adoption of CLE requirements in 1987 is approved for three hours of CLE credit. Indiana was the 18th state to require CLE, and lawyers must complete 36 hours of CLE every three years, and no less than six hours annually.
Chief Justice Loretta Rush and other legal leaders will discuss how CLE can help lawyers in modern law practices. Sessions will focus on the intentions and goals of CLE, demands on lawyers in the digital age, achieving technical competence, and new techniques to deliver CLE.
Registration is requested by Tuesday. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. To register, RSVP [email protected] The program agenda and other information is available on the court's website.
