CBA Named Best CLE Provider for Fourth Straight Year

Written Monday, August 24, 2020

The Connecticut Bar Association has once again won #1 CLE Provider and #1 CLE Provider—Online as voted by Connecticut Law Tribune readers during the 16th annual "Best of" supplement.

“The Connecticut Bar Association is pleased to offer high-quality, relevant, and timely legal education programs that showcase the talent and experience of so many of our members," said CBA President Amy Lin Meyerson. "We are honored to be recognized as the '#1 CLE Provider' and '#1 CLE Provider—Online' by our peers in the legal community."

CLE Provider—Online

The CBA has nearly 400 seminars available on its Education Portal, an on-demand library of CLE seminars, for attorneys to access to enhance their practice and knowledge of the law. Most courses qualify for New York CLE credit and the amount and type of credit that can be earned is visibly labelled. This past bar year, the CBA added closed captioning to the new online CLEs and began offering in-person seminar attendees access to the recorded seminars for free. 

At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the CBA responded quickly and began streaming topical CLE seminars in response to the unprecedented disruption in the way of work and life. On average, approximately 300 members and other legal professionals registered for each of the CBA’s more than 30 free COVID-19 response webinars.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the CBA’s largest education event—the Connecticut Legal Conference—will be held online from September 14-16. The three-day event will include daily compelling plenaries from local and national legal leaders and 45 seminars that will feature both local industry leaders and nationally-known speakers. Members can access the three-day event for just $199 or purchase a one-day ticket for $89.

CLE Provider—In-Person

The CBA will not hold any in-person CLE seminars in the fall of 2020 and will continue to stream engaging and informative CLE webinars this fall. 

The CBA has a long history of providing quality CLE and other educational programming for the Connecticut legal community, featuring top practitioners and other subject-matter experts. CLE programs are well-organized, well-presented, and focus on actionable learning outcomes for practitioners. The seminars help not only participants, but also those members who serve as faculty in advancing their practice, their careers, and their reputations.

The CBA has received the Connecticut Law Tribune's New England Best Of #1 CLE Provider—Online award for the past four years and has been recognized in the top three for CLE Providers since 2017. Two years ago the CBA was inducted into the Connecticut Law Tribune's Hall of Fame for having ranked as a top three CLE provider in at least three of the last four years.

The Connecticut Law Tribune's New England Best Of 2020 showcases businesses that stand out among their competitors in providing readers with the essentials needed to compete in today's legal market.
