Looking for CLE Credit Outside of Ohio? Unfortunately, we are not able to offer CLE credit outside of Ohio. However, it has been our experience that if you take the agenda and materials and submit them to the CLE Commission for your state, you have a good chance of getting CLE credit.
Not an Attorney? If you’re not an attorney or you are, but you don’t need the CLEs, all of the seminars below can be audited for a very low price.
The Intersection of Media & the Law
The Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association and Hennes Communications are proud to present The Intersection of Media & the Law. This all-new, 11-part series will take a deeper look at some of the many ways in which law and media interact. Guest speakers include David Yost, Ohio Attorney General, Adam Liptak, who covers the Supreme Court beat for the New York Times and reporters from Bloomberg, CBS and other news outlets to rarely heard outside the classroom professors from Cleveland’s two law schools. Based on headlines right out of today’s news, these programs are not to be missed!
The programs in this series will only be offered virtually live for CLE credit. After registering, you will receive an email on the day of the program with your unique Zoom link. Tune in from your home or office!
All programs are 2 hours long, running from 12:00 noon – 2:00 pm eastern standard time.
