Attorney Justin McShane has been selected by Lorman Education Services, Incorporated to present a statewide webinar/teleconference to other lawyers and Judges on changes this year in Pennsylvania case law that impacts the DUI lawyer.
It is scheduled for July 26, 2010 from 1pm until 230pm EST. Registration details to follow. I will assure you that this will not be the run-of-the-mill “this case says this and that case says that” boring webinar. I will make it fun, engaging and most of all educational.
What are CLEs? Why should it matter if my lawyer teaches CLEs?
Every year lawyers across the country must complete a certain amount of credit hours of instruction in order to keep their law licenses. In the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, it is twelve hours every year which must include one hour of ethics related instruction.
This is the minimum. Like so many things in life, you probably do not want someone who knows just the very minimum working knowledge on anything that matters to you. I don’t want the heart surgeon who knows the very minimum on how to do the surgery. You don’t trust the family car that you put yourself and the kids in to the mechanic who only knows the minimum about breaks. You should not do the same when it comes to selecting an attorney, right???
There is no maximum limit as to how much any given attorney may learn or attend as far as training hours. I set the record each year in terms of training or lecturing in my state. I do this because I love to learn and I love to teach. You can see it in my professional resume. Generally, course planners only select people to teach who not only know the most and are on the cutting edge, but also those who can engage and teach it in a memorable way. I pride myself on being selected not only within my own state, but at national seminars to present such as Georgia, Connecticut, North Carolina, California, Alabama, Mississippi and elsewhere to educate other lawyers.
Last year, for example, I either presented or attended three hundred and eighty-five hours of training. This year I am scheduled to either instruct or attend over four hundred and thirty hours. There is only one way to stay on the cutting edge of law, science and advocacy and that is to continue to learn and to be exposed to new ideas.
I do this so I can become that perfect mechanism of action that defends those accused of a crime.
