FindLaw Announces Interactive Online CLE




PALO ALTO, CA -- June 28, 1996 -- Lawyers can now earn continuing legal education credits by surfing the Internet through FindLaw's Online CLE courses. The FindLaw Team designed these courses to help lawyers learn how to find online legal resources and familiarize them with some of the best and most useful sites on the Internet. These interactive tests count as participatory credit. They are available online virtually all the time, so it should be easier to fit them into a busy schedule.

"These hands-on courses provide lawyers with a means of finding valuable legal resources online at the same time as they earn CLE credit," said Stacy Stern, Director of FindLaw. "Lawyers can surf, learn and earn CLE credit simultaneously."

FindLaw currently offers the following five online MCLE courses:

  • Introduction to the Internet
  • Finding Federal Law on the Internet
  • Finding California Law on the Internet
  • Finding CyberSpace Law on the Internet
  • Finding Environmental Law on the Internet

FindLaw is a comprehensive searchable legal mega-resource that includes a variety of useful features. FindLaw has a strong topical index of Internet resources in a variety of different legal subject areas, including Constitutional Law, CyberSpace Law, Environmental Law and Tax Law.

From FindLaw, visitors can search the FindLaw site itself, the full text of law journals and law reviews that have articles on the Internet, or legal sites on the World Wide Web using the LawCrawler. Websurfers can access both FindLaw and the LawCrawler for free.
