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 an Environmental Law program for June 2, and has scheduled the customary Election Law program for August 3.

On June 2, 2017, the Academy presents a six-and-one-half-hour program, "Ohio Law of Watershed Protection 2017.1". 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.

On August 3, 2017, the Academy presents another six-and-one-half-hour "Ohio Election Law 2017.2". This program will be presented, as it has been every year since 2007, with updates on Ohio and Federal litigation, legislative activity in the Ohio General Assembly, and the most current Secretary of State directives and advisories. This program will include two and one-half hours of Professional Conduct credit. A description of this program is online here.
