CLE Helps Lawyers Wrap Up Their Required Hours
The Omaha Bar Association’s final educational offering was the Lawyer Referral Service’s “End of the Year CLE: Innovations in the Law Practice,” held on December 7. Speakers who addressed a wide variety of topics in the two-hour seminar were: Patrick Patino, Mary Vandenack, H. Dan Smith, Scott Hahn, Matt McKeever and (above) Susan Koenig. Koenig has become the traditional closer to this CLE, this year addressing “Inbox is Full: Controlling Client Communication (and avoiding a bar complaint).” As usual, she made her presentation interactive, at one point asking all participants to stand, then sit depending on how many times they read their e-mail each day. She conducted exercises that required them to write down letters and numbers, revealing the level of difficulty some tasks impose. The hot topic was the unrelenting use of our phones, which puts up a barrier to meaningful face-to-face communication.
