Three-quarter or full-day, topically focused "summit" programs for both attorneys and allied professionals - like realtors, land-use professionals, accountants, and financial managers - from other disciplines.
An annual Bench Bar Conference, typically taking place in the Fall.
Opportunities to earn free CLE credit in exchange for volunteering on a pro bono case.
Judge Randall Slagle of Travis County, Texas, adopted ODR for his courtroom...in August. Slagle’s court uses ODR for small claims cases of $10,000 or less. In addition to easing the burden on the court and enabling participants to handle legal issues without hiring lawyers, Slagle said another benefit has been fostering genial solutions to disputes.
