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.
