Continuing Legal Education

We’re committed to helping our alumni become well-rounded in all aspects of law and professionalism. We do that through Continuing Legal Education (CLE) opportunities.

CLE opportunities allow Nebraska faculty and distinguished guests to share their efforts in addressing current legal issues through legal research and scholarship. These experiences are also a wonderful opportunity to connect with the Nebraska Law community of students, faculty and fellow alumni.
