Helping Lawyers Meet the Cost of MCLE Requirements


It’s great having found friends and colleagues on Twitter whose directions and passions are aligned with my own. One such person is the author of this post, Tim Baran, whose dedication and integrity continually inspire me to “carry on.” Tim is Principal and founder of uMCLE (Uniform Mandatory Continuing Legal Education), a premier service and resource hub for continuing legal education presenters and providers, attorneys and other CLE professionals. uMCLE advocates for uniform MCLE standards, offers CLE accreditation services and explores the intersection of CLE with Social Media and other emerging platforms and applications.
