IMPORTANT - COVID-19 Update

Continuing Legal Education

COVID-19 Update

CLE delivery is evolving and it’s exciting! Join us for ZOOM meetings starting immediately. This platform is awesome. It’s easy to use. It’s free (to you)! All you need to do is download the program at ZOOM. You will be able to interact with speakers, and a UM-CLE staff member will be there to assist you if something weird happens. This is a fabulous opportunity to learn a new platform. Who knows? It may become an attractive delivery method for upcoming events beyond COVID-19.

* UM-CLE has now resurrected a couple of cancelled programs and will be offering flexibility with others. We hope to go back to “live” face-to-face delivery soon, with webcasting as an alternative.

As always, call me on my cell at 662-816-6829 if you have questions or concerns. Cindy’s cell is (662) 419-8620. WE’RE HERE! We’ve got this! Let’s work together to make this a productive time.


Welcome to Continuing Legal Education at the University of Mississippi School of Law

The Center for Continuing Legal Education coordinates numerous seminars in a variety of subject matters for lawyers, judges, paralegals, and legal assistants. Each seminar is approved for mandatory continuing legal education (CLE) credit hours in Mississippi, and many of our courses are accredited in other states as well. By attending these serious yet relaxed seminars, law professionals will gain new insight into our legal system, a better understanding of emerging legal concepts and cultivate a network of professional contacts throughout the state and region.  Many of our live “in-person” programs are also webcast in real time and archived for on-demand delivery at a later date.
