Then something s missing. Sure, online CLE can be high-quality and convenient, saving you time and travel. But it can t replace the benefits of attending CLE in person. At live CLE, you can meet leaders in your practice area, judges, and colleagues many with the same concerns that you may have. Guidance and referrals you gain from speakers and attendees can be just as valuable to your career as the CLE event. CLE not only educates and trains, it can inspire and motivate through contact with others. Attending CLE in person offers you ways to strengthen relationships and build your career which almost certainly will make you a better lawyer. And that s the goal of CLE, isn t it? Get personal with in-person CLE. TM TexasBarCLE WOMEN & THE LAW SECTION JOIN THE WOMEN & THE LAW SECTION The Women & the Law Section of the State Bar of Texas cordially invites you to membership.
