Every year, attorneys in Louisiana need to take a one-hour CLE on professionalism. I've been to some good professionalism CLEs, but I've also been to many that seem to repeat everything you have heard before. The Louisiana Attorney Disciplinary Board made the smart decision to try to do something different in the realm of professionalism, and has released a Professionalism and Technology one-hour online CLE. I was pleased to be a part of it. The CLE is s lively panel discussion moderated by Loyola Law School Professor Dane Ciolino, a leading authority on Louisiana legal ethics. The participants were me, Abid Hussain, Rajan Pandit, and Brandi McNeil. The four of us have very different practices (for example, Brandi is a public defender) so we all had different perspectives on technology and professionalism. We recorded this three months ago at the WLAE studio in Jefferson, LA, and the CLE became available just a few days ago.
LADB is only charging $20 for this CLE, and since it is an online CLE you can just watch it at your desk over your lunch hour, making this a cheap and easy way to get your professionalism credit. And if you are trying to decide whether to watch this CLE, LADB even produced a trailer for the CLE, thus making this the first time that I have ever appeared in a trailer. (I think it would have been better if they had added a Don LaFontaine-style "In a world" voice-over.) Here is the trailer:
If you are a Louisiana attorney looking to get your professionalism credit before the end of this year, I think that you would enjoy this one. Click here to sign up. (Scroll down to the "E-Learning Courses" section.)
