CLE – Continuing Legal Education

As an attorney, I am required to attend 40 hours of CLE (Continuing Legal Education) every three years.  I must admit, I love CLE since, for the most part, I loved going to school and learning new things.  The Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers, now called the Florida Justice Association, puts on the best seminars for personal injury lawyers.  Recently, I went through many of the books from my CLE seminars and put them in order for my staff to reference.  Most of the seminars I attend are one full day, although some of them have been 2-3 days.  I always come away with at least one or two useful pieces of information to use on a case, so knowledge really is power.  Here is a list of some of the seminars I have attended:
