More about Rock N' Roll Law
"I have been suffering through CLE in various jurisdictions since 1982. I can honestly say this is the first time I’ve enjoyed it. It was both substantially informative and entertaining. I am not in active practice anymore but keep up my licenses. If all CLEs were this informative and enjoyable I would not think twice about maintaining active status. "
"This is not your average, boring CLE! The presentation is full of interesting, real world case studies, music samples and useful information."
"I would go to a lot more CLE courses if they were all this good. "
"If all CLEs were this good, lawyers would spend all their time in auditoriums. "
