CruiseBannerPlease take a minute to learn about the 2017 Paralegal Cruise

I prepared the following list for my own personal use and am making it available to you for the same purpose. These CLE have been compiled from various organizations, I do not own them or have any involvement with them. This information is provided for your convenience only and it is your responsibility to verify CLE eligibility, etc.  At the time of this posting, all CLEs listed below were available free of charge but that could change at any time.

Cost or availability may change at any time. If something does change, I would appreciate it if you would let me know so I can update the list. You can shoot me an email at Also, if you know of a CLE that should be listed here, please let me know so I can add it.

These CLE should be good for paralegals and attorneys, but you should verify the individual CLE details before you sign up.
