Continuing Legal Education (CLE) and Mandatory Continuing Legal Education (MCLE)
Continuing Legal Education (CLE)
- ABA Center for Continuing Legal Education
The American Bar Association Center for CLE Web site offers information and insights into the latest CLE and career guidance provided to you through a variety of vehicles, from the traditional to the latest such as videoconferencing, teleconferences, and webcasting.
- American Law Institute - American Bar Association - CLE
In 1947, the American Bar Association (ABA) asked the American Law Institute (ALI) to undertake the first national program of post-admission legal education. The need to refresh returning WWII lawyer-veterans on the law underscored the necessity to offer continuing education to all lawyers. ALI accepted the challenge, and the two organizations formed ALI-ABA.
- Association for Continuing Legal Education - ACLEA
ACLEA, the Association for Continuing Legal Education, is a dynamic organization devoted to improving the performance of CLE professionals. Those who try it, love it. Over 30% of our membership serves on committees and actively participates in the planning of programs and in the governance of the organization. Established in 1964, ACLEA is an international association. While our members are primarily from the United States and Canada, they also hail from Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, Africa, and Mexico. Administrators, trainers, managers, educators, publishers, programmers and meeting professionals are all members of ACLEA. This diversity in background and outlook makes ACLEA the best source for information on CLE today.
