Continuing Legal Education and Programming

No Cost CLE Programming

As a service to its alumni, Nebraska Law, in partnership with the student organizations, offers multiple continuing legal education opportunities to all alumni. These programs are typically held over the lunch hour. Because programming develops throughout the course of the semester, registration is exclusively online and alumni are encouraged to check this website routinely as programs are added continuously throughout the semester.
