Founded in 1989 by Leo C. DiEgidio, Esq., the Academy of Continuing Legal Education seeks to provide classes which will be useful to small-office practitioners who encounter a wide variety of legal issues of concern to individuals, families, and small businesses. The Academy has engaged judges, magistrates, administrative hearing officers, and experienced private practitioners, to present a continuing series of programs at various locations around Ohio, each of which is approved by the Supreme Court of Ohio toward fulfilling an Ohio attorney's biennial requirement of 24 hours of continuing education. The Academy has incorporated presentations fulfilling the "Professional Conduct" requirement into many of our programs.

In 2017, the Academy has scheduled two programs and is planning a third program.

On January 14, 2017, the Saturday of Martin Luther King weekend, the Academy presents a three-hour program, "Ohio Election Law 2017.1". This program focuses on election law relating to candidates, particularly those who contemplate running in municipal elections in 2017, who may have a May 2 primary election with a February 1 filing deadline. A description of this program is online here.

On June 2, 2017, the Academy presents a six-and-one-half-hour program, "Ohio Environmental Law 2017.1 - Watersheds and Riparian Responsibilities". This program focuses on Ohio laws relating to rights and responsibilities of landowners regarding surface waters, including ecosystem maintenance, stormwater management, conservation easements, and water quality strategies. This program will include two and one-half hours of Professional Conduct credit. A description of this program is online here.

The Academy anticipates presenting the customary six-and-one-half-hour "Ohio Election Law 2017.2 " in late July or August. This program will be presented, as it has been every year since 2007, with the specifics to be determined by what legislative activity may develop in the Ohio General Assembly as 2017 progresses. This program will include two and one-half hours of Professional Conduct credit. Information on this program will be announced online as plans are confirmed.
