AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, March 24, 2020 / -- CLE Companion, a leading provider of live streaming and on demand Continuing Legal Education (CLE) content, announced today that it is offering a free ethics class to accommodate attorneys, who may have been counting on an in-person event in order to fulfill their CLE requirement.

Attorneys should visit this link to get started.

“Sadly, the Coronavirus has been responsible for human suffering around the globe,” said CEO Kristin Davidson. “At the same time, it is having an impact on old, inefficient ways of doing things. Many attorneys had previously relied on in-person events to fulfill their CLE requirement. That’s changing. Attorneys are recognizing the value of completing their CLE requirements online, and we expect this trend to continue.”

Specifically, CLE Companion had seen an uptick in business from attorneys and law firms as well as its partners in the legal services industry, who provide access to the CLE Companion's courses as a component to their services.

“In recognition of the challenges being faced by the community as well as appreciation for the interest we have received, we’re making the ethics class available at no charge," said Davidson. "The course, entitled ‘Overcoming the Effects of Chronic Stress: Saving your Competence and your Practice,’ is presented by attorney and bestselling author, Francine Tone. Mrs. Tone, an expert in the avoidance of “attorney burnout,” touches on attorney wellbeing, stress reduction methods, mental health awareness and prevention and practicing competence in all areas of our lives.”

Once on the site, the attorney may also want to consider other courses, covering all specialties.

In addition to the On-Demand library, CLE Companion offers the following upcoming Live Streaming courses:

• “How to Investigate Without Breaking the Law or Getting Disbarred” (Ethics) on 3/25 @ 10am CT
• “Bankruptcy Basics: Chapter 7” on 4/2 @ 10am CT
• “Bankruptcy Basics: Chapter 13” on 4/7 @ 11am CT
• “The Art of the In-House litigator and the ABC’s of collecting in House Attorney’s Fees” on 4/16 @ 11am CT
• Regulation of Registered Investment Companies: An Overview” on 4/23 @ 10am CT
• “Top ten ways to avoid losing your Appeal” on 4/29 @ 11am CT
• “Introduction to the EB-5 and E-2 Immigration Investment Strategies” on 5/5 @ 12pm CT

Just over a year old, CLE Companion is taking the industry the storm by providing services not only to attorneys, law firms, and their administrators, but partnering with professional services companies that are making it easier, and more cost efficient for attorneys and law firms to achieve their business objectives.

Her business model has not gone unnoticed as evidenced by last week’s article in

Davidson believes that the Coronavirus could be the beginning of a shift away from attending a conference in order to complete one’s CLE requirement. This can be done at a fraction of the cost with an online provider, saving attorneys time and money as well as allowing them to choose courses that will directly benefit their practice.

“CLE Companion was built as a convenient platform for attorneys to complete CLEs, while increasing their knowledge around timely and important issues relevant to their practice,” added Davidson.
