The Network of Trial Law Firms today launches its YouTube-powered TRIAL.COM Online CLE Center at www.TRIAL.COM/cle. Amazingly, the service is 100% free and attorneys watching the videos can qualify for CLE credit in CA, FL, GA, HI, IL, LA, NJ, NY and other states.
Currently 16 videos are online and more will be added shortly. The Network of Trial Law Firms has created dozens of videos in which defense trial lawyers from its 24 member law firms offer practical advice on managing the trial and litigation problems with which in-house counsel grapple daily.
“Education, coupled with the practical trial and litigation examples that we provide, is the best way to improve legal representation and achieve great trial and litigation results for the clients of our member firms,” said Tony Lathrop, a trial lawyer at Moore & Van Allen in North Carolina, and chair of the Network. “We believe that CLE should always be free of charge.”
What makes TRIAL.COM’s Online CLE Center unique is that, subject to accreditation rules in each state, the service permits lawyers to fulfill some of their CLE requirements online from any device and any browser. The service also allows viewers to download course materials and slides while watching the videos.
Each video runs approximately 20 minutes (panels run longer), and is divided into four short sections. Attendance is confirmed using codes embedded in each section which the viewer types onto the same screen that displays the video, following which a certificate of compliance is issued by the Network.
Currently available programs cover keys to winning a case, relationships with in-house counsel, corporate compliance and ethics.
Ten new videos will be recorded live at the Network’s Litigation Management Supercourse in Florida in May. Going forward, approximately 30 videos will remain online, with new videos replacing older ones every six months.
The Network of Trial Law Firms, Inc. is a not-for-profit membership association producing cutting-edge trial and litigation continuing legal education. The goal is to provide clients with high quality trial and litigation representation through advances in education, technology, business and science. The Network’s CLE disseminates information on trial and litigation techniques free online without restriction.
