Earning CLE Credits Free With Know-How: 4 Webinar Options

June 2, 2015

Practical Law logo newWhat is know-how? It’s the processes and practice area-specific “tricks of the trade.” Four upcoming webinars offer a free way for you to gain know-how as you continue your ongoing education as an attorney- and earn CLE credits to boot.

Although it is a relatively new concept for U.S. small law firms, know-how has shown tremendous impact on the growth and performance of many practices. Even among experienced attorneys, 74% of small law firms that use Practical Law use it to keep up with best practices & key changes in the law, and 67% use it to get up to speed quickly in a new/adjacent practice area.

Simply register for any of the upcoming events at http://us.practicallaw.com/resources/webinars. Over the next three weeks we are offering four webinars which will cover a wide range of legal topics.
