Types of 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.
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 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 are replayed presentations of live seminars that you can download to your computer and watch at your leisure. In the case of Elimination of Bias credit, these seminars provide an opportunity for attorneys from out of state to earn their special credit without having to leave their computer. Other on-demand seminars are available for information purposes only, and CLE credit will not be granted by the State Board for viewing.
