Technology

Most programs will be video recorded for an online home study that can be purchased and downloaded about 2 weeks after the program. CBA-CLE also offers closed captioning for all programs and a transcript will be created.

Planning

  • How will the program be marketed?

Your CBA-CLE Program Attorney will prepare ad copy for the program in consultation with the Program Chair and CBA-CLE marketing team. This information will be used to create a program registration page on the CLE Event Calendar.

The program will be advertised in several e-mails sent to legal community members/CBA members in the target practice area, on the CBA Community boards, and on social media (LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook).

If you would like to receive a copy of the marketing time and all the marketing emails for your program, please let your CBA-CLE Program Attorney know.

  • Will I receive feedback from attendees/program evaluations?

We always encourage attendees to fill out the program evaluations. CBA-CLE Program Attorneys will share all program evaluations with the Program Chair. We are happy to send attendee feedback to faculty related to their individual sessions – just let your Program Attorney know.

  • Written Materials

  • What qualifies as written materials?

As a condition of approving your presentation for CLE credit, the Colorado Supreme Court Board of CLE requires that you provide written materials to attendees. This rule applies to panel discussions. If you are on a panel, please work to develop one set of comprehensive materials. The materials should be submitted by one of the presenters via our online form. Your written materials might contain an outline, articles, supporting documents and research, a PowerPoint® presentation, and other helpful resources.

  • A PowerPoint® presentation with slides containing statutes, case law, ethics rules, etc., or any content directly relating to and supporting the presentation topic, can qualify as materials. A PowerPoint® that is primarily photos, videos, etc., and used for entertainment value during the presentation, will not qualify as materials.
