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 third 2019 program will be December 5, thirteen days before the deadline for candidate and issue filings for the March 17, 2020 Presidential primary election.
The December 5, 2019, six-and-one-half-hour "Ohio Election Law 2019.3" program has been approved by the Supreme Court of Ohio, Commission on CLE, for four hours general CLE and two and one-half hours Professional Conduct. This program has also been approved by Secretary of State LaRose, for two and one-half hours of Board of Elections continuing education credit for members and directors. The detailed description of this program is posted here.
