Few things in the legal profession are more awful than accumulating your 15 hours of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) hours. If you’re anything like me — and tons of y’all are — you wait until after Christmas and then find yourself scrambling to find 15 hours somewhere. Last year I found myself paying an ungodly amount to sit in front of a monitor at the Tennessee Bar Association for eight hours of tutorials. Inevitably these classes are incredibly boring and leave you wanting to scratch your eyeballs out.
That’s why soon Outkick the Coverage is getting in to the CLE business. Come the spring I’ll be traveling across the Southeast — and potentially other locations if there is a demand — delivering hopefully entertaining talks on sports, media, and the law. I’m not promising that these talks are going to be the equivalent of a great movie — or even a bad movie — but I am promising that they’ll be much more entertaining than current CLEs.
They’ll also be comparatively cheap.
And to kick it all off you lazy Nashville area lawyers get the first crack at one of my CLEs.
And this one is completely free.
But we can only accomodate 100 of you total so you have to go here and RSVP.
(You need to thank Counsel on Call too).
Here are the details:
It’s from 6:30-8:30 at the Hutton Hotel, 1808 West End Avenue, in downtown Nashville in Vista Ballroom C.
And here is what I’ll be talking about:
- How ESPN’s television contracts have driven up the value of college athletic events but also caused tremendous legal conflicts.
- The complexities of conference bylaws in the modern era utilizing the Big 12 bylaws in particular
- Analyzing the legal obstacles and ethical issues for Missouri and Texas A&M to join the Southeastern Conference.
