  • Earn all of your annual CLE credits while obtaining invaluable knowledge on a variety of areas. Our Bridge-the-Gap programs fulfill a full year’s credit requirements for those who are newly admitted, while providing essential information and credits for more experienced attorneys. This program is particularly distinct in that one day will allow attendees to fulfill all required skills credits, and the other day will allow attendees to fulfill all required ethics credits. Attendance on both days will provide the total professional practice required of all newly admitted attorneys. A skilled faculty will guide you through the day-to-day practice of law and cover topics of interest to all attorneys, including legal ethics. Each Bridge-the-Gap program contains updated content and will provide CLE credit to all attendees, even if they attended in the past.
