By providing online CLE to new attorneys, more lawyers can get the professional training they need to maintain their license and competency. Due to the convenience of continuing their education through the internet, this removes many of the limitations traditional, in-class training creates for both the students and educators.
Receiving education through the internet is the wave of the future. For students, this means not having to trek back and forth in what may be long and arduous trips for them. Depending on the season and the weather, they might have to contend with inclement conditions that may prevent them from going to required seminars. What if the class is still in session and students within walking distance were able to attend? Unfortunately, there will be those who cannot get there on time or be present at all. Without that training they will fall behind in their studies.
For the educators themselves, this means less overhead in trying find a place to put all of these students. They can put most, if not all, of their course material online and have their students access them whenever they want. This means even less overhead for expensive books and other supplies.
CLE online has given both starting attorneys and educators more options in providing the education necessary to further their profession.
