CLE Continuing Legal Education
'Not just a Duty, an 'Edge!'
from THORNHILL Educational SystemsTM
by Ric Riccobono - Director

As a paralegal, you still need to keep learning. With different case law appearing all of the time study requires a legal professional to be updated and informed in a very timely manner. This will always keep you ahead of the game and will help to accelerate your career. The mandatory requirement for Continuing Education Credits is what separates the legal professional from other jobs. You are required to stay up with the requirements of Business and Professions Code section 6450 for paralegals or Business and Professions section 6070 for lawyers. Also, the firm you're employed by will most certainly mandate that all staff keep abreast of periodical updates and CLE credits. While the credits vary state by state, in California the current update requirement for Paralegals is 8 credits every 2 years. Without this you have, in essence, lost your Paralegal status and cannot be billed out as such.

A look at the Basics

- Courses are designed for Paralegals (PL), but are also certified for Lawyers
- Paralegals, 2 years after graduation have to update your profession with CLE units and must continue this process every 2 years thereafter. Attorneys are also required to have CLE units to be with compliant. Attorneys have somewhat different requirements, but must always be up to date.
- Thornhill Educational Systems (TES) is here to help you through that process. We make it easy, inexpensive and fun. And we do that a without you having to take one test.
- TES provides all the courses the graduate needs

Keep in mind, that keeping up to date is Mandatory and helpful to building your career. Remember, you have a CAREER not a job.

How good and valuable would you look to the lead attorney at your firm or President of the company you're employed at if you’re able to notify them of a recent change in law or precedent that protects their interests? So it's not just a function it’s your reputation, after all, you update your cell phones, your computers, and your software don't you, so don’t you think that your career is worth it?
Remember, you'll be competing not only with the job placement, but with advancements as well, so don't look at your CLE as a boring necessity, but as a career.
