Things just ain't what they used to be when it comes to earning those CLE credits. Remember the days of having to sit in some over-air conditioned conference room with a bunch of other lawyers as mad as you at giving up billable time to earn credits? Well, if those days aren't exactly gone, the times they are a-changin'. Below are a few less painful ways to get part of your required ethics CLE under your belt.
