Brush up on Legal Tech This Summer and Get Those CLE Credits

It's common to get summeritis, you know, when all you do is stare out of your window and wish you were on the beach? Well, you can actually go to the beach and get work done -- sort of. If you don't mind doing light reading, or watching a video on the beach, summer is the perfect time to catch up on CLE courses.

Just in time for summer, the American Bar Association has unveiled the ABA TECHSHOW Summer Series. Consisting of four webinars, the courses highlight information "from some of the best ABA TECHSHOW 2014 presentations" -- which is great if you were not able to make it out to Chicago this past March.

For more information on the courses and how to register, keep reading.
