UPDATE: We are happy to announce that John W. Dean and his co-presenter James David Robenalt are now booked to  deliver their Ethics program: WATERGATE III: Breaking Rank on Sunday, July 19.

Join AZCLE® for CLE by the Sea. This multi-day conference features intermediate to advanced level programming and opportunities to network with the finest legal practitioners in Arizona and beyond. Attendees learn complex legal theory and rules from the leading attorneys, judges, legal scholars and other subject matter experts.

Half-day programming is ideal for learning and knowledge retention, and allows participants, and their vacationing families, the opportunity to spend the afternoons relaxing and enjoying leisure time. We invite you to relax on the beach, enjoy the nightlife of the Gaslamp Quarter, explore Coronado Island, take in a Padres game or check out the San Diego Zoo and the USS Midway.


This year's CLE by the Sea kicks off on Sunday with a afternoon program "Watergate III: Breaking Rank." This program, delivered by John W. Dean, former White House Counsel to Richard Nixon, and James David Robenalt, Watergate scholar and accomplished trial lawyer, follows the story of Dean's personal involvement and navigation through the Watergate scandal - and examines the ethical and legal choices a lawyer must face when their client or organization knowingly breaks the law.
