Anyone who wants to get CLE credit for the programs they’ve watched can easily upgrade their account by either purchasing the individual course they’re seeking credit for, or purchasing an annual unlimited subscription.

Free trial users are making the most of their ten days and enjoying our programming with vigor. Curious what free trial users are watching? Here are the three most popular courses right now:

  1. Framing and Arguing Your Case in the Supreme Court: Tips for Certiorari and Oral Argument. With the Senate confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh underway, the Supreme Court itself has become the subject of top headlines nationwide. For those itching to get your case actually heard before the Court, how can you convince SCOTUS to take your case? Your questions are finally answered! Learn what you can do to get SCOTUS to grant your writ of certiorari, plus gain helpful practice points for framing your oral argument before the Court.
  2. When Bad Biases Happen to Good People: A Primer on Recognizing and Interrupting Implicit Biases. Like it or not, we’re only human and we all have biases - some positive, some negative, and some in between. In this important program, explore how to recognize implicit biases and how such biases can impact the legal system. Learn how to interrupt those implicit biases and gain practical strategies to improve your legal workplace. This course will fulfill any diversity or elimination of bias requirement (California, Illinois, Minnesota, or New York attorneys: this means you!).
  3. Civility and Professionalism in the Courtroom. Beyond merely complying with ethical rules, attorneys have an obligation to maintain a certain degree of civility and professionalism in the courtroom and beyond. Failure to engage in proper conduct can have serious consequences… but what do we really mean when we use the word “civility”? This fascinating program will walk through various examples of civilized and uncivilized behavior, and explore the many adverse consequences that can result from unprofessional attorney behavior. It also fulfills the Professional Responsibility requirement for Illinois attorneys, and the professionalism requirement for those from Utah!

To tune into these can’t-miss programs, register for your free trial now. Free trial access will grant you access to these programs and over 1,500 other dynamic and cutting edge on-demand CLE content. Well… what are you waiting for?! Happy watching!
