It is the final week of MCLE Crunchtime, and this also means it is the final week for attorneys with last names starting with N-Z to complete their 25 hours of MCLE credits, as required by the California Bar. Here are our two final classes of the 2019-2020 Crunchtime season:

On Wednesday, January 29th, attorney Randall Christison returns to teach Persuading Trial Court Judges. In this one hour MCLE session participants will learn how to present effective arguments to the trial court, including writing effective introductions, editing written arguments, meeting trial judge expectations, and effectively using headings and fact statements. This class is the last of our Writing Wednesday courses.

And, finally, on Thursday, January 30th, Chief Deputy City Attorney Rebecca F. Zipp will present on Elder Abuse. This session will provide an introduction to the crime of elder abuse, including various Penal Code sections, jury instructions, case studies and red flags of elder abuse for legal practitioners. The class will cover physical and financial forms of elder abuse.

Both of these MCLE classes will take place at our Downtown Location from 12 pm to 1 pm. If you haven’t already registered, you can register through our website, or come in 15 minutes early to register at the information desk.

And, even though this is the end of Crunchtime, we have MCLE classes throughout the year, so you can always sign up for our MCLE Class package which allows you to attend a year’s worth of MCLEs for the price of three classes!

If you can’t make it to our live MCLE classes OR if you need some last minute credits, we have dozens of self-study MCLE audio recordings, including recordings that provide Legal Ethics, Competency, and Elimination of Bias credits. You can listen at the library or check them out through our borrowing program.
