Virginia CLE Essentials

“So many of us have entered into this industry the hard way—being thrown into the deep end of the pool and learning to swim...It would have been wonderful to have just the essentials laid out for me, so that I wouldn’t have to be burned to a crisp as I learned by trial by fire.”
– Kevin T. Pogoda, Essentials faculty

“I think the Essentials programming is absolute genius. When you get out of law school, you have all of these rules and regulations. You know what the law is; you just don’t know what to do with it—how to get from A to B to C. You know what needs to be done objectively. It’s just the practical aspects that sometimes cause the problem”
– Kay M. Creasman, Essentials faculty

Virginia CLE® Essentials programming is designed to get straight to the heart of what you need to know to succeed. These short seminars are ideal whether you are a new attorney, a veteran checking in on current best practices, or considering expanding to a new practice area.

Essentials seminars are available first as live-interactive seminars, and then as on-demand online programs. Examples of Essentials seminars include:

  • Essentials of Bankruptcy Law in Virginia
  • Essentials of Cross-Examination
  • Essentials of Depositions
  • Essentials of Drafting Wills in Virginia
  • Essentials of Intellectual Property
  • Essentials of Residential Real Estate Closings
  • Essentials of Spousal Support in Virginia
We will be greatly expanding our inventory in 2018 and beyond.
