Types of Seminars

Live Seminars

Live seminars are presentations in various areas of practice with actual presenters following a published schedule. Live seminars provide opportunities for interaction with the faculty members considered experts in the subject area, and time for Q & A is generally built into the seminar schedule. Live seminars are most often conducted at our state-of-the-art Conference Center in downtown Minneapolis.

We also hold about a dozen larger annual events called “Institutes” at either our Minneapolis Conference Center, or other event facilities throughout the Twin Cities. These seminars usually are comprised of some plenary sessions as well as numerous breakout sessions running simultaneously, giving attendees some choice in which topic areas to focus their learning.

 

 

Video Replays

A video replay is a scheduled replay of a live presentation. Generally, two Minneapolis replays of each live seminar are scheduled, and there are also numerous replays throughout Minnesota in locations that are part of Minnesota CLE’s Statewide Video Seminar Network (SVSN). For each scheduled replay there is a live moderator that is present for part of or the entire seminar.

 

 

Live Webcasts

Live webcasts are presentations in various areas of practice with actual presenters in a live studio setting. Attendees participate via a web portal on their computer. These seminars are presented live at the scheduled time, and provide an opportunity through a link to submit questions to the presenter/s. Minnesota CLE’s webcasts are usually one or two hours in length, but some three hour seminars have been presented in the past. Webcast start times are usually 9:00 a.m. or noon, and are a great way to get your credits without having to leave your desk.

Before you participate in a webcast, it is important that you make sure that you have the proper software and hardware requirements. Please click on the following links for more information.

 

 

On-Demand Seminars

On-demand seminars are recorded presentations of live webcasts and seminars that you can watch at your leisure. Once purchased, you may view your on-demand programs by logging in at www.minncle.org. Resource materials typically accompany these programs, and each program allows you the opportunity to submit questions to the presenter. On-demand seminars do have viewing expiration dates, so be sure to take note of that date upon purchase of any on-demand program. The Minnesota State Board of CLE does grant credit for on-demand programs, and Minnesota attorneys may earn up to 15 credits per reporting period by viewing on-demand seminars, as defined by the Board's Rules, subject to the provisions outlined in Rule 6E.
