Extract from "ABA Offering Free Legal Ed Classes to Lawyers Hit by Shutdown"
The American Bar Association is offering free continuing legal education classes to all lawyers affected by the partial federal government shutdown—including those who aren’t ABA members, the group said today.
The CLE classes, also open to non-lawyer government workers, include programs on legal ethics, disaster response, and healthcare data breaches.
“This is a way to help lawyers during this difficult time who do so much for the country,” ABA Executive Director Jack Rives said in a press release.
I wanted a certification that separates me from my peers. Upon discovering CEDS, I was convinced this was exactly the type of distinction I had been seeking. Since achieving CEDS certification, I’ve noticed immediate recognition from my organization, colleagues, and current and prospective clients.They acknowledge they are more comfortable working with a person who has taken time to seek such certification. CEDS has certainly been worth the small investment and should continue to beget returns for years and years to come.

I get bombarded with all kinds of e-discovery stuff – news, blogs and whatnot. Let me tell you, you guys send the absolute best! I send it to all my partners and sales folks. I said, who are these guys? I have to get to know them better!
