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 do's and don'ts for using PowerPoint during presentations. In addition, participants will 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 a training session
  • Creating a 10-minute video presentation with materials for discussion/analysis

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

Here's what attendees say about the program:
