Continuing Legal Education

The CLE Department sponsors legal education and skills training courses each year for members of the State Bar. All South Texas CLE courses meet the mandatory requirements for continuing legal education in Texas and in most other states. The department presents live programs on sustentative areas such as oil and gas, real estate, wills and probate and personal injury.
