I recently came across Advocate’s Studio, the blog of Martha Sperry, a Boston lawyer who, like me, has a strong writing background and is also interested in music, technology, and a wide range of other subjects. On her blog, Martha covers legal research and modern tech tools to assist the professional practice of law. Unbeknownst to me, Martha praised my presentation for MentorCLE, “Persuasive Writing for Lawyers,” in a post last June. Many thanks, Martha!
As I noted in a previous post, you can watch my presentation and any of MentorCLE’s other great offerings for free; if you’re a lawyer, you can pay a small fee and receive one hour of professionalism (ethics) credit for it in Illinois. If you’re licensed in a different state, check out your state’s policies to see whether you can get CLE credit there. As I mentioned last week, I receive a small royalty every time someone views my course and pays for CLE credit.
