Richard Clem Continuing Legal Education
High quality, reasonably priced CLE opportunities: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Indiana, Nebraska, Texas, and other states.
If you previously registered for the July prepaid CLE special, you can complete the programs any time until December 31. Please visit this link for links to the individual programs.
August 31 update: If you still need credits before today's deadline, I can still help you out. If you haven't already used your 15 on-demand credits, that is your best option. Check the link below. I'll be checking my e-mail until Midnight, so if you take any of these courses, I will get back to you with confirmation that you completed the course in time for you to report.
If you just need one or two credits, the conference calls might be most convenient. Currently, I have programs scheduled between 9:00 AM and 3:50 PM. Not all programs have registrations yet, and I would prefer to combine them if possible. If you need ethics credits or general credits, please plan on taking the program starting at 11:20 AM if possible. I'm currently planning on at least 2.25 hours, and will go longer if you need the credits. The bias programs in the morning do not have any registrations, but if you need them, I will move those programs to this afternoon or evening.
I am a Continuing Legal Education (CLE) provider in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Iowa. I concentrate on having lively and relevant live courses, telephone conference call courses, and Wisconsin podcast courses. My courses are affordable, are routinely approved for CLE credit, and are high-quality programs. Many live programs are scheduled on evenings and weekends. I've been in practice for over 25 years, so most of these programs come from my own experience. However, I am always looking for presenters, so if you have an idea for an interesting program, please contact me.

On December 6, 2013, the Minnesota Supreme Court amended the Minnesota CLE rules to permit "on-demand" CLE programs. The new rules took effect on July 1, 2014. Minnesota attorneys may now complete up to 15 of their required 45 credits using on-demand programs. You are now able to download a program and take it at your convenience. The new rules permit you to use these on-demand credits for any type of CLE, including ethics and bias. For more information about the new rules, please see the Supreme Court's Order.
You may take these programs at any time that is convenient for you. You can listen to them online, download them to your computer or other device, or dial in and listen to them on the phone.
On March 24, 2014, the Iowa Supreme Court amended the Iowa CLE rules to allow Iowa attorneys to receive up to six of their required 15 credits each year with "unmoderated programs." For more information, you can view the Supreme Court's Order or the Iowa CLE Commission's Guidelines.
