FOR END OF YEAR: Web-Based Recordings

Christmas Day - a day to relax - and once the gifts have been opened and the eggnog drunk, what can be more relaxing than picking up that last credit or two so you may ring in the New Year with a clear conscience?
I can NOT imagine anyone doing any live programs on this day, there are many recordings you may enjoy at your leisure. I'll be adding them here in between cups of cheer. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
  • Lexvid offer one free recording just for signing up. They have a big catalog covering a lot of subjectss, including ethics. Naturally they'll want you to like their content so much that you  buy more, and their prices are pretty low.  I have recommended them for years, and never got a complaint. Recently, they have started supporting 4freeCLE by offering affiliate links, so if you *do* buy a course from them, please consider going  through a link on this blog, such as:
  • Washington State Creating an Inclusive Workplace for Attorneys with Disabilities. By WSBA. Get 1.5 General Credit free but you have to watch it this month (December 2015) and you have to be a Washington State Attorney.
  • Lexis-Nexis Online Training is good for credit in most states, and right not I count at least six one-hour programs waiting for you. Go to the list and create a free log in, then hit the "Launch " button for the course that interests you.Check the list of states for which credit is granted; if it says "Credit not yet applied for" don't  worry; they don't apply in some states where they don't have someone taking the course. When you take it, they'll apply for credit. Check it out!
  • The National Judicial College has a large collection of free online educational programs, largely concerning trials. I do not see anything on the website that says you cannot take a  program and apply for credit. The content is well organized and authoritative; if you have a trial practice you may find it especially useful. Just be warned - your credit-granting authority determines whether your application for credit will be allowed, so you may wish to check with them first. It would be crazy not to allow credit for these courses, but not impossible.
