Continuing Legal Education and Programming

As a service to its alumni and friends, the College of Law is happy to provide CLE opportunities throughout the academic year. These events provide a wonderful opportunity to use the facility and reconnect. Because programming develops throughout the course of the school year, registration is exclusively online. We encourage interested individuals to check this website routinely as programs are continuously added.
