The COVID19 situation is changing rapidly, and we, as lawyers, are having to adapt quickly. These webinars are dedicated to assisting practitioners on a range of topics. As topics are developed, they will be listed on this webpage. Visit this webpage again for new topics. Should you have a topic idea, please send them to me at

HOW DO I GET MY CLE HOUR ISSUED?  The listed webinars will qualify for one hour of LPM CLE, unless indicated otherwise. Additionally, these webinars will count as one of four hours of technologically enhanced CLE allowed under Rule 3(d). You need audio AND visual for the hour to be issued. Your CLE hour will be issued if the attendance report which we will receive after the conference reflects an one hour attendance. When prompted, make sure that you have entered your correct bar roll number. There will be no need to complete a CLE card for these webinars.
I'M HAVING AUDIO AND VIDEO ISSUES: Be patient. Webinar platforms globally are having huge surges in use. Glitches may occur. That said, connectivity issues may be arising on your end - specifically from your internet provider and/or your modem and router. Please ensure that your equipment has been updated (find out if your router and/or modem need to be updated and do so, if needed). Also, familiarize yourself with your device (unless you have a very old device, your device should have speakers). Make sure that you know how to turn on your speakers. 
REGISTRATION TIP FOR CLE WEBINARS:  Register early. To do so, click the appropriate link for the desired topic, date and time. This link will bring you to a separate registration page which will require you to input your name, email address and bar roll number. After you do this, you will be emailed your unique webinar link for your device (your unique link will not work for another and not for another device; do not share it). Again, register early so you are on time for the webinar.  IMPORTANT:  if you mistype your email address, you will not receive your unique link. Use the device that you used to register for the event. If the attendance report shows less than an hour, we will send an email to you to certify that you were online for the hour with full audio and visual capabilities.  
WILL WEBINARS BE MADE AVAILABLE VIA VIDEO? Some will be made available without charge through In Reach which is a service that the LSBA uses for webinars on demand. For topics regarding laws that are changing quickly (read: daily) due to coronavirus situation, those will not be made available until the law settles. However the CLE materials for these webinars will be posted.  

Some topics will be offered several times to accommodate as many practitioners as possible.
