Busy attorneys flock to Bar's
Distance Learning offerings

The Bar's Distance Learning program is
experiencing record growth as busy attorneys
continue to look for ways to maximize their
profitability, satisfy CLE requirements and
catch up on the latest legal developments
without leaving the office.
The popular Seminars Direct Online
program recently reported a 74 percent
annual increase in online credit hours,
which represents the single largest jump
in the history of the program. Nearly
2,000 Bar members earned an average of
3.6 online credit hours each during the
most recent reporting year. We're
thrilled with the recent growth, said
Matt Riley, the Bar's Distance Learning
Manager. We're doing our best to pro-

vide choices and flexibility in terms of
CLE content, and this is a great sign that
our members are really responding.
The most popular form of Distance
Learning, Seminars Direct Online allows
attorneys to take CLE classes online from
their homes, offices or anywhere an
Internet connection is available, with the
ability to pause, resume and even re-
watch the seminar for up to 30 days.
With more than 130 seminars spanning
30 practice areas, attorneys appreciate the
broad selection offered by Seminars Direct
Online. Tom Runge, an attorney from
Columbia, said, I was pleasantly sur-
prised at the ease of the process along
with the number of topics and options
within the topics. The Bar regularly adds
