CLE Institute

What Is the CLE Institute?

The State Bar of Arizona is committed to the professional development of our members. This voluntary faculty development program was created for CLE presenters who want to increase their proficiency in presenting CLE programs. Participants will learn advanced techniques in PowerPoint, be introduced to Prezi and experiment with polling technology such as Poll Everywhere.  Participants will also learn tips from seasoned public speakers, simple techniques for engaging the audience and how to select and moderate panels.  This program is ideal for newer CLE presenters seeking to sharpen their presentation skills and experienced speakers looking for the latest strategies in adult education.  This program includes:

  • Viewing pre-recorded video lectures
  • Participating in two training sessions
  • Creating a 10-minute video presentation for discussion/analysis
  • Receive a certificate upon completion of program

The program fee is $50.  Program may qualify for one hour of MCLE.

Here's what attendees say about the program:

"I was pleased with the caliber of instructors/presenters and learned some exciting new techniques to make my presentations fresh and engaging. If you want to take your presentations to the next level, I highly recommend the CLE Institute." - D Wright '15

"I was a confident speaker and presenter when I applied to the CLE Institute, but I didn't realize how much I could improve upon until the experience was complete. The Institute was a valuable experience and one I recommend to speakers with any level of experience!" C Hayes '15

"...fantastic training. ...helped produce far more professional presentations... tremendously experienced instructors. I believe the CLE institute has elevated my presentation skills and I would recommend it to everyone." - J Reihing '15
