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 2019, the Academy will present the customary Ohio Election Law programs, to keep Ohio attorneys, election officials, candidates, campaign professionals, and citizen activists, informed on actions of the Ohio General Assembly, of the Secretary of State of Ohio, and of Ohio and federal courts, as those actions affect the conduct of elections in Ohio. The second 2019 program will be July 25.

The July 25, 2019, six-and-one-half-hour "Ohio Election Law 2019.2" program is approved by the Supreme Court of Ohio, Commission on CLE, for four hours general CLE and two and one-half hours Professional Conduct, and has been applied for approval by the office of Secretary of State LaRose, for Board of Elections credit. The detailed description of this program is posted here.

Later in 2019, the Academy will likely present Ohio Election Law 2019.3 on a day to be determined in the last week of November or first week in December, in advance of the December 11 filing deadline for the March 10, 2020 Presidential Primary election.
