Continuing Legal Education 2012

posted Mar 29, 2012, 9:29 AM by Gerry Schulze
I am a supporter of Continuing Legal Education.  I participate in Continuing Legal Education programs as much as I can. I frequently work with National Business Institute, which has a long-standing reputation for putting together  high quality continuing legal education classes all over the country.

 I have probably taken on more than I should the first half of this year.  On February 29 I did two sessions for "Handling Complex Auto Insurance Coverage Disputes.  I covered "no fault" and the ethics hour.  

Then my good friend Jim Jackson had to be out of town during his scheduled presentation in Advanced Trial Tactics.  I put together a quick PowerPoint (borrowing some of the material from a PowerPoint presentation Jim had done plus adding some material of my own.  I think it went well.

I am scheduled for two sessions in Social Security Disability, from Start to Finish, on May 8, 2012, a session in Auto Injury Litigation from Start to Finish (I have the "start" part) on May 23, 2012, and then "Find it Free and Fast on the Net; Strategies for Legal Research on the Web the next day.  

Then I've also agreed to serve as the moderator for "Anatomy and Physiology 101 for Attorneys."  I have absolutely no medical training, so I don't hold myself out as an expert on the field.  But I've dealt with disability and injury cases for almost 30 years, so I have a lot of experience asking experts to explain these issues to me.  That must be what qualifies me to moderate this program.  NBI has lined up some very qualified experts to actually discuss the issues.

I highly recommend these programs.  I think it is extremely important for us, as lawyers, to keep up with developments in the field.

I enjoy ethics the most, because ethics sessions allow me to get people talking.   You can see some of the ethics hypotheticals in the handout for Advanced No-Fault issues and Legal Ethics in the Digital Age.  We had a very interesting discussion during the Advanced No-Fault course, and I'm hoping for an even more vigorous discussion in the "Legal Ethics in the Digital Age" session.

I'm attaching some of the materials from these courses if you are interested in reading more about these courses.
