But if you’re looking to save a few bucks, you can try the following steps to locate free continuing legal education courses offered by state bars:
- Visit the official website of each state’s bar association. They often have a dedicated section for continuing legal education (CLE) or professional development.
- Look for the “CLE” or “Events” tab on the website. State bars usually provide information about upcoming CLE programs, including any free courses available.
- Check if the state bar offers online CLE courses or webinars. Many state bars have embraced online platforms to provide convenient and accessible educational opportunities.
- If you don’t find a specific section for free CLE courses, look for general CLE listings and filter the results by cost. Some state bars may offer a mixture of paid and free courses, so be sure to use any available filters to identify the free options.
