This is a DVD presentation, but it qualifies as participatory. It was shown earlier this month in Vista.

California attorneys who wish to maintain their eligibility to practice law have to complete 25 hours of approved MCLE credits every three years.  The deadline for attorneys whose last names start with a letter from H through M to complete those 25 hours is February 1, 2018. At least 12.5 hours have to be participatory and the remaining half can be self-study.
