Professional In-House Skills
Minnesota Continuing Legal Education Skills Training program was established in
1988 to provide accessible and affordable skills training to Minnesota lawyers
through interactive, participatory learning-by-doing courses. Minnesota CLE is
committed to providing opportunities for continued professional development and
creating a practicing bar of the highest competency.
An in-house training program may be the most effective way to train the
attorneys within your firm. The Minnesota CLE Skills Training staff can design
and implement an in-house program that meets the specific needs of your firm.
Since group training is conducted in a closed setting, actual cases or
situations you are working on can be used in depositions, negotiations, opening
and closing arguments, direct and cross exams, or expert examinations.
In-house training provides you with the unique
focus on specific advocacy skills

training courses allow participants to acquire, rehearse and perfect their
advocacy skills. Students perform various skills in small group exercises, which
are critiqued by our expert faculty in our specially designed courtroom
immediately following their performances. Each attorney is given an insightful,
objective and honest review of his/her performance by outstanding teachers who
are some of the finest practitioners and judges in Minnesota.
For more information about in-house training for your firm, please call our
office at 651-227-8266 or 800-759-8840. We will meet with your professional
development representatives to develop a program that meets the specific needs
of your attorneys. Many of the programs listed under
course offerings can be
presented in a single or multi-day format and/or two programs can be combined or
modified to create a new program.
