Continuing Legal Education (CLE) the HCBA way:

More value-added. More local. More conversational. More connected.

  • Over 80 CLEs each year put on by HCBA Sections and Committees are FREE for HCBA members to attend in our offices.

  • As a regionally-based bar, we're focused on the local perspective on law-related issues and on the 4th District courts.

  • The knowledge and perspectives of attendees are valued and actively sought out.

  • Taking CLEs from the HCBA allows you to grow your knowledge at the same time that you grow your connections to the local legal community.

We aim to make every HCBA CLE experience a great one. In our view, great CLEs are those where the quality of information provided is excellent, attendees are engaged participants, and connections happen before, during and after the program.

Section and Committee CLEs:

HCBA members can attend any 1-hour CLE program put on by the volunteer leaders of HCBA sections or committees at no cost beyond the annual cost of membership dues. These programs primarily relate to the specific topic of focus of a particular HCBA section or committee.

In-Depth, Multi-Hour CLEs:

These CLEs focus on hot topics and trends of broad interest to attorneys, as well as skill development and programs that connect HCBA attorneys to other local professionals. 

Law & Literature CLEs:

This popular, well-regarded HCBA series offers a discussion-based approach to earning your ethics and elimination of bias credits. Participants read short stories, plays and other short works of literature in advance of the session, and discuss them in the context of the particular roles and responsibilities of attorneys.

Leaders in the Nonprofit Community (LINC) program / CLE series:

Many attorneys are called to serve nonprofit organizations as volunteer leaders . The LINC program is focused on the knowledge and skills needed, and the unique challenges lawyers face, in nonprofit governance. LINC is setup as a multi-session cohort program, where participants achieve the designation of LINC Program Graduate.
