To help out those attorneys in Minnesota CLE category 3, who need to complete their CLE requirement by June 30, 2011, I'm offering a number of reasonably priced live programs and video replays in St. Paul on Wednesday, June 29. Ethics and Elimination of Bias credits are available. The cost of all programs is only $25 per credit

Up to 5 credits, including 1 elimination of bias credit (approved) are available. Pre-registration is required for the 10:00 program, but walk-ins are welcome for the later programs.
