Richard Clem Continuing Legal Education
High quality, reasonably priced CLE opportunities
: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Indiana, Nebraska, Texas, and other states.

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-Demand CLE


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.

Wisconsin-New York

Under Wisconsin Court Rule 31.05(5), Wisconsin lawyers may claim up to 10.0 CLE credit hours for approved on-demand programs. Since New York has automatic reciprocity with Wisconsin, New York attorneys can also take Wisconsin programs for CLE credit.

Conference Call CLE

The following telephone conference call CLE's are being offered for Minnesota, Wisconsin, and/or Iowa credit.

Upcoming live CLE programs

I currently have the following live programs scheduled:

Free CLE

I occasionally present free programs, which will be announced here.

Free Iowa-Minnesota ethics conference calls, 11/28, 11/30, 12/4, 12/6

In addition to my programs, there are other providers in the Twin Cities who occasionally offer free programs, which are often quite good. Since these are a good way to finish needed credits, I have some of them listed here. These are all links to external sites:

Thank you for visiting my CLE page. Before you look at this page, please visit my blog for information on what's happening in Venezuela right now. The people of Venezuela are fighting for their freedom, and as lawyers, this should be a grave concern for us.
