The topic at this time is: "Why You Should Care About Appraisals"; it appears to be scheduled to change bi-monthly.
You must register to access the program, but registration is free (even if you're not a member of the Texas State Bar!) They ask for permission to send you more information, so perhaps it's a marketing thing, but surely that is a small thing to give them in exchange for what you get!
MCLE Credit: 0.50 hours in Texas. Whether any particular program earns CLE credit in YOUR jurisdiction is up to YOU to find out; frequently a jurisdiction will extend credit if the subject matter is appropriate and YOU fill out a form. In my (admittedly limited) experience, sometimes someone ELSE will have done it already so you can ride on their credit application coattails.
More information from http://www.texasbarcle.com/CLE/OCFree.asp
"TexasBarCLE is pleased to offer this complimentary half hour of participatory MCLE credit. You will find a new topic available every other month. Please check back on these dates in 2009 for a new free class: January 1, March 1, May 1, July 1, September 1, and November 1

More than 3.3 million homes went into foreclosure in 2007 and 2008—about 5 percent of the mortgage loans in the U.S. Many experts expect 3 million more homes to go into foreclosure in 2009 alone. Additionally, some banks have estimated that it is possible that up to 16 percent of all residential mortgages will go through foreclosure during the next four years.
This crisis situation has led to a number of private and government-sponsored loan modification initiatives. But the early programs have had little success in reducing homeowners’ monthly payments and keeping people in their homes. The programs have been unpopular with both banks that do not want to see big cuts in loan principals and with homeowners who refuse the programs’ onerous terms. Securitization of loans has further complicated the process because individual homeowners, and the real estate attorneys who work with them, often cannot figure out who to discuss modifications with since they cannot identify who owns the loan.
Recently the Obama administration has instituted a new program for beleaguered homeowners facing foreclosure that tries to rectify some of the issues of previous initiatives, but the jury is still out on whether or not the program will be more effective than earlier ones.
This free downloadable audio program will examine:
- How the real estate crisis has developed
- The existing programs for homeowners in trouble including the new Obama initiatives
- The steps lawyers can take to keep homeowners in their homes, including the guidelines for participation in the new program
- The prospects for changes to Chapter 13 of the Bankruptcy code that could help those not helped by the loan modification programs
