Introduction

Attorney Et Al., LLC., a Nevada Limited Liability Company, is justly proud of the quality of its CLE offerings. Offered herein is the most complete CLE program available and is specifically designed to operate on PC (CD-ROM & on-line) and Macintosh (on-line only) computers.

In order to work on PCs, the programs are designed to be browser based meaning that they run off a browser rather than using a Windows operating system likewise they run off the Real Audio sound player than the Windows wave player.

Operational Requirements

To run either the on-line program or the CD-ROM program, you need a computer with a sound card and speakers. Additionally, the programs require Internet Explorer (version 4 or later) and the RealAudio player -- both of which are included on the CD-ROM program.

You can test if your computer meets these requirements by clicking the DEMO here. If you do not have Internet Explorer (version 4 or later) on your computer you can download it for free by clicking here for the latest Internet Explorer for Windows or Macintosh.

If you need to install the RealAudio player, you can download the latest from Real Networks page. You should note that their basic free player will work perfectly with our lectures. You may also choose to purchase their advanced player, which contains more features not utilitized by the Attorney Et Al lectures.

If you have an older system, you can choose the version of the player for your system here.

Various CLE programs were designed to permit attorneys to complete their CLE requirements, For example:
 Online CostCD-ROM Cost
26 hour California CLE program$104$156
30 hour Florida CLE program$120$180
45 hour Colorado CLE program$180$270
25 hour New York CLE program$100$150

These programs will include between 7 to 17 full length books on cds along with lectures.

These courses have been approved by the state bars of California, Colorado and Florida (30 hour package only). New York has also approved the courses under its reciprocity rules.

California has approved all of Attorney Et Al.'s offerings as satisfying its CLE requirements for both self study and participatory credit depending on the election of the attorney and use.

Between one-third to one-half of each course is previewed on its own separate linked page so that the courses can be reviewed and evaluated before ordering.

Participatory Credit

Seminar or participatory credit can be earned for California and New York several ways:

  1. If the courses are proctored and the person proctoring the lecture signs a statement attesting to that fact on the answer sheet for the questions.
  2. I __________ declare that I proctored the following lectures for _____________ and he (or she) completed all of them.
  3. Dated _________________ Signed ___________________
  4. During the lecture, the computer asks the attorney, at random intervals, to click a button within a certain period of time. If the key is not pressed in the given time period, then the user must rerun the lecture from the last point at which the attorney made a response. Once the attorney makes all the appropriate responses, a password will be given. This password will be accepted by the California State Bar as proof that the attorney completed the course and is entitled to participatory credit. The attorney then must submit to Attorney Et Al. a Statement of Completion for the course in order to receive a Certificate of Completion showing the bestowal of California Participatory credit. The Statement of Completion can be submitted on line by using the web link as discussed below in the topic "Web Submission of Statement of Completion" or emailing the Statement of Completion form contained on the course CD-ROM to Attorney Et Al. at questions@attorneyetal.com or mailing the Statement of Completion to:
    Attorney Et Al, LLC
    P.O. Box 2315
    Carson City, NV 89702
    
Upon receipt of the Statement of Completion, the attorney will receive a Certificate of Completion for the participatory credit.

Self Study Credit

Self study credit is obtained by the attorney listening to the untimed lectures at his or her own pace. The attorney then must submit to Attorney Et Al. a Statement of Completion for the course in order to receive a Certificate of Completion showing the bestowal of Self Study credit.

The Attorney Et Al. Advantage

The reason that this course can be offered at this price is that the books are presented in CD form rather than printed. If the books were offered in printed form, the costs would increase another $30 to $50 per course and that would defeat the goal of furnishing attorneys an inexpensive CLE course. Attorneys can print the entire book on a laser printer in about 45 minutes for the price of a ream of paper. The option of purchasing printed books may be offered in the future depending on demand.

There is great advantage and convenience afforded attorneys in presenting the CLE program in both online and cdrom formats. Both formats use so few resources of the computer, that an attorney can still fully use the computer to open files, run programs, etc. while all the time listening to the lectures. Use of either format does not interfere with the attorney's productivity.

The CLE program consists of the books and lectures. There are no questions to answer. The CLE credit is earned solely by listening to the lectures and submitting the statement of completion as proof.

Introduction to Course Books

Attorney Et Al. is deservedly proud of the depth of its offerings. So much so, it is unabashedly presenting its books, which are the core of its program, here so that an informed decision can be made as to whether to purchase the the CLE course.
