Sydney, 19 August 2010: Clayton Utz has set a new benchmark in Continuing Legal Education (CLE) with the development of CU CLE TV.
CU CLE TV provides Clayton Utz's clients' legal teams with access to high-quality, online CLE presentations. They are available on demand, 24 hours a day and can be accessed from anywhere in the world. Presentations cover a broad range of areas and are constantly reviewed to ensure the currency of information presented.
Commenting on the practical application of the break-through, Clayton Utz Chief Operating Officer Stuart Clark said:
"CU CLE TV is the most innovative, flexible and convenient tool currently available to our clients' lawyers to earn CLE points. The program makes obtaining mandatory CLE points easy, while at the same time providing our clients' lawyers with access to cutting-edge presentations on topical legal issues. No other CLE program is as flexible or convenient as CU CLE TV."
CU CLE TV was created through Clayton Utz's Client Relationship Management program to meet the needs of Clayton Utz clients. Mr Clark said: "Our clients told us they needed a convenient, cost-effective and reliable solution to meet their CLE targets. They needed a program where they could take control of their CLE schedule rather than the schedule controlling them. We listened to their needs and used their feedback to tailor the most innovative and creative value-add: CU CLE TV."
"A number of Clayton Utz clients have already trialled the innovative program and we are very pleased by the feedback we have received," said Mr Clark.
Each CU CLE TV presentation is eligible for CLE points as per the guidelines provided by the law society in each state.
