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. Non-alumni may also register for these programs at a cost of $20, payable at the door.

The NCAA is a private association of universities that governs the conduct of its member institutions, their staffs, and student-athletes. Its organizational structure and administration has import for the competent representation of coaches, students, and universities charged with NCAA violations or challenging NCAA decisions. Its enforcement processes differ from traditional trials and, in salient ways, from ADR processes, again raising serious issues for competent representation as well ethical issues such as identifying the client, potential conflicts of representation, and impact of NCAA proceedings on related civil and criminal trials. In this CLE presentation I describe the NCAA structure, rule-making and dispute-resolution processes as foundation for discussing the role and responsibilities of lawyers in these processes.
