Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Workshops

The Center for Practice offers a number of CLE workshops each year to enhance practicing lawyers’ professional skills and judgment for the highest level of legal practice. Proceeds from Center for Practice CLEs are generally used to fund student exposure to legal practice skills and strategies inside and outside of the classroom, including negotiation and trial practice competitions, cases simulations and video recordings, and visiting faculty for practice courses. Proceeds from the Downtown Faculty Teach-In proceeds are directed to UC Law student scholarships.

The following are events for the 2017-2018 academic year.
