Ahh, CLE

I did a free 30 minute CLE this morning. Having to finish 15 hours a year, it makes sense to do as many free ones as possible - the more you do, the fewer you have to pay for. I have no problem with that.

Today's CLE was on communicating with your clients. They discussed different personality types - I'm a "Blue," as opposed to a "Red," "Yellow," or "Green." Apparently, I like to have structure, yet have some lattitude in how I perform. That's not really surprising, to me, though I think the stereotypical attorney is the Red - the guy who doesn't want to be muddled with details, just wants the facts and to render his opinion.

CLEs are not the most exciting thing in the world, but they've gotta be done.

how do you find out about free CLEs?

I guess one of the benefits of working for a nonprofit is that I get to take CLEs for free all the time. I'm currently good through 2011, with another couple of free CLE opportunities coming up soon. If I keep it up, I'll be good until 2015 by the end of the year. Hey, there's got to be some benefit to not making any money, right?

Texasbar.com has a CLE site that offers a new free 30 minute CLE every 3 months. 30 minutes isn't a lot, but it's that much less that you'll need to pay for later.
